     Ice Cold Watermelon after ride

It's been a long-standing tradition for the Club to have a ride on the Saturday nearest the 4th of July followed by consumption of ice cold, juicy watermelon!  2024 will be no different.

Ride from Bentley Park in Bixby to the Hectorville store and return for a 29-mile ride.  Or cut it a little short with a 23-mile route.  Both maps can be found on the event page for this ride.  The routes will NOT be marked, so download the map to your smart phone or GPS device from the Club's Ride With GPS page.

Find all of this and more on the event page for the ride:  WATERMELON RIDE, annual Club ride - 7/6/2024
