Group rides are way that we can show force and solidarity in numbers when entering a populated area. It it a way to add you voice, your energy, your power to the movement and make the media and the community take notice. We have chosen four locations for group rides. Butler, Pittsburgh, Cumberland, and Washington DC. You can find details below. All routes and times are subject to change. Liability waivers are be required to participate. Save time and print yours out here.
