For more than a decade, the Friends of the Flint River Trail has offered a weekly ride program that is welcoming, safe, and comfortable for beginning and intermediate riders and for families. FFRT promotes bicycling to new riders and introduces riders to local and regional trails.
Although there are numerous ways to start and run a successful community bicycling program, what follows here are suggestions and ideas that have worked well for FFRT. Different towns and different sets of people might require a different approach, but we hope that this information will provide a starting place for some of you trying to get a group started as well as added tips for established groups.
