Ride Schedulecalendar

Each ride has an A, B, C ride classification. See the Ride Classifications page to determine which ride is best for you. Call for Ride Leaders! Contact Steve Alfred at president@kickinasphalt.info.

RSVP Policy - In fairness to our Ride Leaders we are instituting an RSVP request for rides outside the HHI/Bluffton area.  Simply reply "yes" if you are coming to the ride.  If there are no responses by 7:00 am Saturday, the Ride Director will cancel the ride so the Ride Leader will not head out unnecessarily. Thank you for your cooperation.

Inclement Weather Notification Procedure - When the weather looks bad, the Ride Director will consult with the Ride Leader that morning before 7 AM.  If we decide to cancel the ride, a ride cancellation notice 2 hours before the ride start.  This will normally be 7 AM.  If there is no announcement, the ride is on.  Our overriding concern will always be ride safety. 

Every Saturday

NOTE: START TIME is 10:00 a.m. through February, unless otherwise noted
