Alternate Saturday Ride Start Time

Although the start time for the main Geezers ride remains at 7:30 a.m., on Saturdays a second, smaller group of Extreme Geezers has formed that starts at 8:30 a.m. and rides at a somewhat slower pace. The second start time is for riders who want to sleep in an hour longer on Saturday, who want to start at an hour when the temperature starts to warm up, or who want to be able to ride to the starting place in the daylight without using lights. Both groups start from the traffic circle at Invergordon and Northern in Paradise Valley. -- Jack Quinn
