When you get right down to it, riding is what we’re all about. Whether it’s riding for fun, commuting, supporting a charity, seeing how fast/far you can go or just to enjoy the scenery, we all love to get out and get our wheels spinning. Participating in a club ride will help you become a better rider and will likely take you to some wonderful locations that you’ve never been to before….even if they’re in your own backyard.
First, get familiar with ride classifications and check out the ride calendar for an upcoming ride that meets your skills/comfort level or perhaps challenge yourself by picking a slightly more difficult ride. Who knows, before you know it, you may be leading a ride.
In addition to our regular weekly ride, each month of the riding season we offer at least one special ride:
May/June : Spring Rally and Picnic
June: Weekend Century Ride
July: Breakfast in Confluence and Mt. Davis Ride (either up the mountain or on the GAP)
August: Rough Diamond Century or Trail Ride Fundraiser
September: Fall Rally and Picnic
October-November: Dirty Dozen Training Rides
December: WPW Winter Membership Meeting and Party
- WPW jerseys and vests: With the newly designed logo, we have been working with Primal to create new club jerseys and vests. These can be ordered online from now until July 13, 2017 at midnight MST at which point the online store closes. Here are the details:

- Each member will pay for their garments at the time of ordering. Mens-cut or womens-cut jerseys are $70 and vests are $66.
- These are custom jerseys and take time for Primal to produce.
- The club will get a bulk delivery just prior to Fall Rally in early September.
- This single bulk delivery option saves each member and the club a $10 per item shipping charge as shipping is free for this single bulk delivery method.
- If you have led (or plan to lead) 5+ rides this year, please contact me about special ordering instructions as a ride leader appreciation.
