What is Nancy’s Ride?

Nancy’s Ride is a welcoming, inclusive ride for all cyclists with the goal of sharing Freewheelin’s love of supporting youth cycling. This year all ride loops will start and return at the Tabernacle Presbyterian Church across the street from the Freewheelin’ Community Bike Shop. Can we count on you to join us?

Come join the fun on a great day of riding with friends of Freewheelin' and tour our great city and surrounding areas. Riders may take on several of our planned routes and enjoy fun amenities in the Tabernacle parking lot for the entire family. From face painting, to small bike cone courses, to mechanical We will have snacks, beverages, lunch, and restrooms. The family-oriented Destination Ride (10k) will include unique destinations and attractions. Then, we have mapped three (3) distance rides for riders to explore 20-mile loops to the North, East, and West of the Start/Finish zone.
