Ride Leader Kickoff

Mary Kernan



At one time, the annual Ride Leader kickoff was one of the most anticipated events at the start of the summer riding season. It was always a great time to reconnect with your Ride Leader friends and to plan rides for the season. Covid forced us onto Zoom for the last two years and it just wasn’t the same.

But this year, finally, we’re back to being live! Please join us on Thursday, May 12th from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the Lexington Depot for a return to a live, in-person kickoff. Doors open at 6:30 and we’ll be serving plenty of food and beverages. Hey, we hired a bartender so we can serve the good stuff! Ed Cheng is gonna kill me if I blow my whole budget on the first party of the year, but for Ride Leaders, it’s worth it.


You’ll have plenty of time to socialize and catch up with your friends, and I’ll give a brief presentation on all the great things happening in the Club. We’ve also got a fresh group of members who’ve just been through Ride Leader Training and will be looking to co-lead your rides so they can qualify as fully fledged leaders. Our recent survey shows that there’s a huge demand for rides and we’ll do all we can to help you get them planned and posted.


Registration is required for this event ‘cause I don’t wanna run out of food. To register, please go to https://www.crw.org/content/ride-leader-kickoff?rid=13995&date=2022-05-12


I look forward to seeing you on the 12th
