Check this page often for Gus' updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around New Hampshire and New England. Scroll down for info on shop, fun, road, tri, cyclocross or mountain bike rides/races. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!
Join Gus' ride leaders on one of these fun rides. Whether you are new to cycling or an old pro, there is a ride that's right for you. Be sure to check out our "Local Maps & Rides" section to find a list of rides of all distances starting right from the shop.
