Sep 18 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Hey! Are you tired of obstructing traffic? Sick of being verbally abused by drivers because you’re riding 4 abreast? Or perhaps the Lycra is starting to scare your children. Then why not blow the inch thick dust off of the mountain bike and join the best looking MTBer and his merry crew for some off-road action on Wednesday night.

A different route most weeks. Check out the B&DCC Facebook group page to see what we’re doing this week.

Crashes are all but guaranteed, and we have plenty of laughs.
