MOB – Methodists On Bikes

May to October 2nd & 4th Wednesdays and Special Rides throughout the summer

All adults are invited to join this recreational bike riding group. The MOB will ride on the  second and fourth Wednesdays (10-12 miles at a slower pace). Our Wednesday rides will always commence at the church parking lot at 6:30 PM.

All rides need a Ride Leader, and MOB members take turns assuming this obligation. We must be careful not to rely on the same people to lead our rides, so please consider it your responsibility to volunteer to lead a ride If we do not have a Ride Leader, the ride will be cancelled. If a ride needs to be cancelled due to weather conditions, notification will be sent an hour prior to starting. Cancelled rides will not be rescheduled. Contact  mob@stmarkscarmel.org with questions.
