Ride Schedule  

Note: The CBTC BOD has polled members about their willingness to resume club sponsored rides.  As a result, we will resume club rides beginning 27 June.  For the foreseeable future, we will forego post-ride lunches in restaurants or other closed, indoor facilities.  Instead, we will gather (at prescribed distances) afterwards outdoors and enjoy each other’s company with picnics.  You are encouraged to bring your picnic basket and perhaps your lawn chairs to each of the following club rides.
