Announcing our July Sunday Ride Series

What’s up C-wheelers?  We say that every month is bike month at Commonwheels, so we’re gonna need a new term for July, something along the lines of Mega-Bike-Month, The Once and Future Bike Month, Bike Month XTREME!, or The Bike Month That Shall Not Be Named – we’re open to suggestions.  The point is, our calendar for July is stuffed to the gills with bike events, including our new Sunday Ride Series! Every Sunday from the July 10th to the July 31st, we’ll be going for a nice, leisurely ride leaving from Commonwheels.

For our first ride, Corina will lead us out to Walden Pond for a dip.  Details below.  We’ll see you there!
