2014 season update: Monday night rides will begin on May 26th and run every Monday (rain or shine) until the fall!
Monday night rides will be hosted by Whistler Bike Co., Wild Wing Whistler, Back in Action, Nesters, and WORCA.
Monday nights are fun and social rides for all abilities. Riders are divided into groups based on ability and go out with guides who instruct when necessary. Wild Wing Whistler restaurant provides a social afterwards with all participants receiving a free frosty beer and great appie specials along with safe bike storage!
