The UMass Lowell Bike Shop in conjunction with the Outdoor Adventure Program hosts a variety of bike rides as well as instructional programs.

GROUP RIDES

Our group rides are a great way to have fun, get some exercise and meet others who are interested in bikes! Fall rides are focused on mountain biking and spring rides on road biking. Don't have a bike? No problem! The bike shop can get you set up with what you need to enjoy a day on two wheels. Most of our rides take place on beginner or intermediate terrain and have a fun, relaxed, no drop pace where no one gets left behind.

Check out our current rides and other trips on the Outdoor Adventure Program Trip Calendar page.
