BITS (Back In The Saddle) is for new riders, riders who want to get back on their bikes after a long time of not riding, and for riders who want to grow in their confidence to ride in groups or on the roads.

No rider will ever be left behind. All BITS rides will have a ride leader and a sweep who will ride behind the last rider.

Each BITS ride is designed to provide riders with opportunity to extend the distance ridden, offer opportunities to ride different sections of the Loop Path, and on bike-friendly streets.

Each BITS session will include a teaching component to help riders be aware of how to safely share the Path and the roads with other users and to be able to deal with common road-side mechanical issues.

Informational Component:

* Review avoidance maneuvers--quick turn and rock dodge/swerve
* Road and Path moments

This week's route will all be on the Loop Path, about half on the Pantano River Park Path and half on the Julian Wash. Our Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26725809
