End your work week with a leisurely bicycle outing.  If you like to move slowly, chat with friends and see what’s around you, this is the bike outing for you. 

WHEN: Every Friday evening at 5:30  pm in Manchester, CT.  This weekly series begins July 11 and continues through the summer. 

WHERE: At the Manchester trailhead of the Hop River State Park Trail. The parking lot is off of Colonial Road, just east of the intersection of Colonial Road and Parker Street (adjacent to the AAMCO transmission shop).
