Fonta Flora Bike Club Thursday Rides


Let’s ride bikes….together!

Join us for the Fonta Flora Bike Club. Our easy breezy group ride that everyone can join. This ride will rotate from the Fonta Flora Trail, with post vibes at Fonta’s Whippoorwill Farm to an in-town cruiser that finishes up at the downtown pub.

Below we have listed the two ride locations and the specific details for each like meeting location, ride length, etc. Please read through them and then join us!!!

A quick note on kids joining the rides – this will be at the parent’s discretion. While this is a casual ride, it could be difficult for kids to keep up at an adults pace. We encourage you to join a ride first to determine if it’s suitable for your kiddo! But please know they are welcome.
