            Winter

            • Monday - Thursday

              The Kiln Creek Riding Experience
              5:30 pm
              Kiln Creek Park (
              2901 Kiln Creek Parkway, Yorktown)
              All Paces Welcome

              This ride is an option to get some miles in during the winter when it's too dark after work for the regular summer evening rides.
              Clockwise on the Kiln Creek Loop, 3.3 miles per lap, 6 - 12 Laps.

              We start around 5:30 pm, but since this is on a short loop, riders will be lapping past the park about every 10 minutes, so it's easy to join in at any point.


              **Watch the
              PBA Facebook Page and Back Alley Ride Facebook Page  for info & cancellations**
