FAMILY Ride - 3 miles

Technically this is a fifth option, but it's for the whole family, and it's free! This three-mile ride leaves the Carey Institute and stays on a quiet country road with a few small, gradual hills for 1.5 miles before returning the way it came. Guided by one of our volunteers. Just show up and ride, no registration necessary.
