Depending on attendance, we might divide the rides into two or more groups based on ability. These will be “no-drop” rides, so no one will be left behind. 

Inclement weather: If Mother Nature prevents us from riding on a given Saturday, we will hold the scheduled presentation then try to reschedule the ride.
