The Winter Ralleye was started in 2003 by Jason Shelman. This year will be the 15th year in a row of having it. We meet for a ride once a month between November and April each year.
Words form the 2007/2008 Winter Ralleye Poster written by Jason Shelman discussing the goal or the Winter Ralleye
These “Winter Ralleye” were started five years ago to urge a few friends to continue pedaling their bicycles through the winter months, all in the name of fun and adventure. This winter we will continue pedaling.
