DIRT: Ride Calendar

Our ride calendar is an easy at-a-glance way to see what's going on with CNY DIRT all year long. Rides, trail maintenance sessions and other activities are listed on their days (or nights) along with links to other important information. This makes planning for DIRT members easy. It also maximizes the opportunity for new-members to participate in events. All are welcome.

Not every DIRT event could be listed here. Some may be added or deleted as the season progresses. And there are usually some impromptu rides or meetings happening. The world is a dynamic place and we need to constantly change to keep up with its demands. To avoid confusion or if there are any questions concerning the events listed on the schedule here, please call or stop by the Bike Loft for more information. Or better yet, attend a meeting or join and get involved with the planning process. Suggestions are always appreciated.

Starting Times: Sunday rides begin at 12-noon or 10:00 sharp  (depending
on the ride) and Saturday maintenances begin at 10:00 am.

All dates and locations are subject to change!
Please call the Bike Loft at 458-5260 to confirm events.
