GROUP RIDES


One of the great things about bike hubs are they provide a central and friendly place to meet new people, socialize, and organize. If you don’t have a bike, no worries, we can lend you a bike and a helmet. Join us for both regularly scheduled and special event rides. We are continually adding new rides, and are always trying new ideas!

For the most up-to-date info about  group rides in Scarborough make sure to check our Events Calendar.
