Road Bike Rides

Thank you for a great 2019 season, please check back in Spring of 2020!

We host weekly road bikes rides during the spring and summer. We also host special event rides. Our routes take us through scenic Glastonbury and the surrounding towns. GPS and Cue sheet files get posted so you'll know where we are riding. Everyone is welcome and our rides are free. We have a group for novice riders, a few groups for intermediate riders, and an advanced group for the fastest riders.  Questions?  Call or email keith@cyclingconcepts.com  860-633-3444.
