Please note –usually a leader accredited by Pedal Power will be available to lead the ride. The ride leader will not necessarily be the ‘event organiser’ shown below who puts the ride on the calendar and fields enquiries. If no accredited ride leader is available, those present may organise their own ride, but that will not be a programmed Pedal Power ride.
