Pos Peds Co-hosted Rides

Different Spokes member Salvatore Ianniello recently became Ride Coordinator for the Los Angeles Chapter of Positive Pedalers.  He is going to be setting up one AIDS/LifeCycle training ride per month on Saturdays from August 2017 through May 2017.

He has asked that the rides be co-hosted by Different Spokes.  So, look forward to the addition of Saturday rides being added to our calendar.

Of course any of our club members who are Certified Training Ride Leaders will be welcome to volunteer to co-facilitate these rides.

Thanks Sal!
