*NEW GROUP RIDE*

Join the Sunday Dunn Bros Ride beginning on May 3, 2015 at 10 am!  This ride leaves from our newest sponsor, Dunn Brothers on Grand Ave, promplty at 10 am and is open to SPBRC members and friends.  The friendly pace is ideal for riders who want to practice group-riding skills in a low-pressure setting and racers who want a recovery pace or more social ride. This is a “No Drop” ride that averages 15-17mph pace for 3 hours. Afterwards, stick around for a cuppa Joe or a sweet treat at Dunn Brothers!
