2021 RIDE SEASON POSTPONED!

Due to the rise in COVID cases in Michigan, the 2021 Ride Season will be postponed until further notice. Please look for updates on our web page and in your email box for updates as they become available.

We are very excited to announce the 2021 Metro 313 Cyclones Ride
Schedule. This year we have a full schedule of rides developed for the various riding experience levels of our growing membership base. As always, our rides must be safe and fun while developing
cycling skills and passion.

As the pandemic is still a serious consideration, please note that all
Club sponsored rides will adhere to the protocols outlined in the
Cyclones Covid-19 Protocols. All participants, vaccinated for COVID -19 or not, must abide by these protocols. The guidelines are adapted from both the Center of Disease Control as well as the US Cycling Organization. These measures are designed to mitigate the transmission of the COVID virus but do not eliminate all risk of transmission. You are accepting full personal responsibility when you participate in a Cyclone Club activity. Please see attached for more details.
