SPREAD THE WORD! Our goal this season is to get cyclists of all levels to ride with us. This is a volunteer led ride and is approximately 6-8 miles at a slow to medium pace. We will be riding through and utilizing residential streets, bike lanes, and if necessary hike and bike trail system.
Remember Bike McAllen follows the rules of the road. WE STOP AT RED LIGHTS. BE ALERT / PREPARED: bring water, carry a spare tube, bring front / rear lights and wear your helmet. Please listen to the group Ride Marshall’s that are volunteering to help lead the ride safely; they are some nice folks and have your best interest in mind.
We will meet at the McAllen Chamber of Commerce Parking Lot (Across Archer Park) at 6:00 pm. Prep & Group intro / rules of the road at prior to departure; wheels down at 6:30 pm. We should return around 7:30 pm.
6-8 mile route, moderate pace (5-12 mph), may require multiple regrouping stops. This is a no-drop ride, however if you experience severe mechanical failure, please consider calling for pickup.
New to the Social Ride scene? Here are some tips to guide you:
The goal is to create a safe environment for all cyclists and reach the destination without injury. We cannot control, nor would we want to, every riders’ behavior. We strongly encourage personal responsibility on all Bike McAllen rides; it is up to YOU to maintain safe conduct for yourself and those around you. If you choose to ride with us YOU accept the risks inherent in riding a bicycle amongst a large group of other cyclists of varying skill levels as well as being in close proximity to vehicular traffic.
