Note the time and location change for this month's Argonaut Rides. To close out the season, we'll move the start to the McClellan/S. Foothill strip mall and roll at 5pm for this last month. After a brief warm up through one of the mazes, we will tackle the goats in the area, finishing before dark. This will be a strenuous training ride while climbing difficult goats to get ready for the off-season. Ride rolls at 5:00 PM sharp. Wet Pavement cancels. Bring lights just in case.
