We will seek God and a sense of each other as we explore central Iowa on our bicycles. We will ride at least 10 miles a day.

Workshop Description

We will attempt to form cohesive, mutually supportive, Friendly and tightly spaced subgroups, within the workshop. Hopefully this will allow everyone to ride with others of similar pace and distance expectations and to feel the community of group cycling. Tighter groups will also enhance safety while riding on roads with automobiles. To participate in this workshop, you must be led to ride at least ten miles within 2 1/2 hours and be comfortable riding on roads with cars.

Leader Experience

This will be Chris's seventh consecutive year providing the biking workshop at FGC.  Leon is stepping up to help out as a leader for the first time this year, but has ridden the workshop multiple times at previous Gatherings.  Hurray Leon!!  Chris has tried to take input and improve each year, but in general they have all gone well.
