Here’s how:

1) Pick your meet-up spot. 2) Contact the group leader for your preferred meet up spot. Let them know that you plan to ride with them so you don’t get left behind and can get updates in the event of changes. 3) Check your bike tire pressure, brakes, and chain so you are ready to ride. 4) Helmets required.
