Our ride leaders will give a briefing 10 minutes before the ride begins and outline the route and other specifics for the day. So try to arrive at least 20 minutes before the ride begins to give yourself enough time to get ready.What to bring:• Your bike (in good working condition)• Water (preferably a water bottle or camelback)• Your helmet• Sunscreen• Sunglasses (recommended to keep bugs and sunlight out of your eyes)• Weather appropriate clothing• A great attitude and sense of adventureIf you have any questions about our rides, please contact Bill Orchard at BillOrchard@juno.com or 303-422-9468.
The Apex Center is hosting a 9Health Fair on April 26. This is a great opportunity for everyone to come take advantage of affordable preventive health screenings – and lots of free stuff too! You can get a health check that costs less than most insurance co-pays and gives you great information you can share with your provider.
We still need a few volunteers to help us at the event. If you have time and passion, we need you! Sign up online at https://www.9healthfair.org/health-fairs/volunteer/signup or call 303-698-4455.
