Ride Information

The Cider Ride is an unsupported, self-guided, recreational bike ride.

  •  Participants receive digital ride routes in advance and a paper cue sheet at check in.
  • There are group starts for each ride where you have the option to start with other participants and volunteer ride marshals. You can also ride on your own or friends who have registered for the ride
  • The streets are not closed for this ride. We do our best to choose low-stress bikeways, but all 3 routes share the road with motor vehicle traffic.

Registration for any of the 3 routes includes:

  • A spot at the event on Sunday, November 7, 2021
  • Digital access to the ride route and free turn-by-turn smartphone navigation for Ride with GPS
  • a WABA Cider Ride mug
  • Snacks and water pick up at the start line
  • Hot cider, donuts, and other snacks at pit stops and the finish line

After the ride, join us for a post-ride celebration where you can purchase food, drinks, and relive the ride with your fellow WABA members and bicyclists!
