Sunday 1/13 ECT Group Rides

Sponsored by the Community Exchange Cycle Touring Club
We leave no riders behind.

There will be the option of stopping at the Kennedy School to soak in
the hot tubs there. If you want to join in that option, please be sure
to bring a bathing suit, towel, and some money (hot tubs are $5 per
