What to Bring

Dress Wisely

October can be cool, with rain and wind certainly possible.


Wear layers, some moisture repelling clothes, and if rain is forecasted, gloves, a toque, and even some bags to keep your feet dry during your ride. Of course, it could also be a beautiful fall day with no wind and blazing sunshine, so keep an eye on the weather forecast as Ride Day approaches.
