Special: RIF RAF (Riders into Fitness, Recreation and Fun) - Look for this symbol, which identifies rides and events screened to include clear directions and/or well marked routes, and a 'pack at the back' whose goal is to support and encourage each other. Great for newer riders!
Note: These may not be easy rides - refer to the difficulty ratings (#1, #2, #3, etc). They will be opportunities for improvement, exercise and friendship at a relaxed pace.
