Registration is now open for the 9th Annual Cary Way Kick-Off Ride. The Kick-Off ride is an annual event that starts the official MBC ride season. For the past 9 years the event has been named in honor of our past long-time president, Mr. Cary Way.
This year’s ride is scheduled for April 2 and will be held at Barfield Crescent Park, Pavilion 5, 697 Veterans Parkway Murfreesboro, TN 37128. 3 rides are available including a 22-, 37- and 49-mile options. All rides start at 9:00am. Route options can be viewed and downloaded from our RideWithGPS (RWGPS) Kick-Off event page.
Be sure to RSVP if you plan to ride. The RSVP replaces the old sign-in sheets we used in prior years. If you don’t already have an active RSGPS account, you will be prompted to create an account when you press the RSVP button. Fill in the information and download the app on your Smartphone. Don’t worry, it is a free app and if you are a current MBC member, you will get Premium features at no cost when you are logged into the club account. I highly recommend that you download the RWGPS app on your smartphone. It is an essential tool that will allow you to navigate, log, and share your rides.
Following the ride, we will have lunch and brief the membership on what is planned for the 2022 ride season. There will also be a swap meet for any gear you wish to barter, buy, or sell.
For those who are interested, a Cycling Basics class is available during lunch. This is an excellent overview for new riders and/or those who may not be familiar with group riding. We will also be available to assist those who would like information on how-to setup and learn the basics of RideWithGPS.
Be sure to register by March 30. Event registration can be found in the events area of the MBC web site home page or you can click here for direct access to the registration page. There is no cost to register.
We are using McAlister’s Deli to cater lunch. You can order your box lunch when you register. These menu options are available for a small cost. The club will provide drinks and ice. Be sure to place your order by March 30th.
The MBC team is anxious to see the start of the season and seeing each of you. Thanks in advance for your participation.
