Road Rides

Our fearless Road Ride Coordinator, Richard Handler. Richard has held this post for the past 5 years. The task will be assumed by Bob Taylor and Michael Buffum starting in 2018.

Thanks Richard!

Below is the list of road rides, Sundays and Wednesdays. Between March 6 and October 30 there are 74 days on which TE hosts road rides!

If you would like to Lead a Ride in 2017, please Click Here to send an email letting us know which ride you want to lead.

On left side of this list are the rides. Clicking on a ride will enable a hyperlink to the map and profile.

Next two columns show leader and co-leader #1.

This list will remain on our website and will be updated throughout year as leaders email me with requests. Please join those who have already volunteered, or add more rides to those yo have already chosen. I entered my name for many vacant slots, and will gladly relinquish any dates when another TE member wishes the privilege.

Please also consider co-leading the shorter options. Co-leaders need not be hot shot riders. We need participation of riders across the spectrum of riding speeds and endurance.

Thank you all for participating and helping keep the rides and the club strong.

Road Ride Coordinator
