*This event is dependent on state and local government direction and AOC Leadership direction.

*We will adhere to any social distancing directives that may be in place.


This is not a beginner bike ride; we will be averaging over 14 mph with limited stops.


Join us for a ride on the Silver Comet Trail.  We'll start at the Florence Road Trailhead.  There are restrooms and water there.  We'll head west to the Rambo Road Trailhead.  Stop briefly to regroup and then return to Florence Road.  This section of the SC is fairly flat and will be a great venue for a first ride of the season.  We will get spread out, you should be comfortable with this.  
The ride is suitable for a gravel, hybrid or road bike. Please make sure your bike is ready to go the night before.  We will depart from the parking lot at 5:30 sharp so please arrive 15 minutes early.
