"Team CycleFit is a bicycle club for beginners, families, and casual riders. ALL types of bikes are welcome! No one is left behind or dropped. Spandex is optional. Basic bicycle maintenance and first aid is provided on each ride, so if something were to happen, help is not too far away. We try to ride on bike paths to avoid tangling with cars, especially when we have a lot of kids with us. Come join a group that loves to ride for the social aspect and exercise--we're not trying to be racers or take ourselves or our bikes too seriously."- Dr. Ernie Medina
