This is an all riders/all bikes ride.  All about conversation and fun. Cruisers, fixies, hybrids, or road bikes.  This is a great ride if you are new to group rides or just want to take it easy with nice folks.  We have pastries and coffee, and always visit an interesting Twin Cities landmark. 

Discover your city by bike! Ride Leader: Jacob Haskins

Cycling is an inherently dangerous sport: Freewheel Bike and its representitives are not responsible in any way for any percieved or actual injury before, during, or after group rides.  Please take personal responsibility for your own safety. Helmets are required for all rides. We will ride together in a warm up pace for first 5 miles of all rides.  Obey all traffic laws including stop signs and traffic lights. We wait for all riders caught at stop signs or traffic lights and those who have mechanicals or flats.  Never say "Clear!" Each person must determine if the road or traffic crossing is clear for them.  It is courteous to point out obstacles such as cars, potholes or debris.  Drafting is encouraged but be careful.  Do not overlap the wheel in front of you.  DO NOT 'HALF-WHEEL' IF YOU ARE RIDING SIDE BY SIDE ON THE FRONT!  Keep a hand on your rear brake at all times. Watch out ahead of you. Avoid sudden moves left and right and sudden braking or acceleration. NEVER INTERACT WITH OR CONFRONT MOTORISTS. No rider will be intentionally left behind.  Ride leaders reserve the right to dismiss or reject riders that display unsafe or dangerous behavior, demonstrate poor bicycle handling skills, or are utilizing faulty/unsafe equipment.
