UU Bikers


The UU Bikers is an informal group of UUs who seek the physical and spiritual benefits of biking together. We try to pace ourselves so that everyone finishes together regardless of ability level. To join our email group and receive ride reminders with details, contact Bob Lovell (see directory available at church).
