Overnight Trips

Most TCBC rides are day rides starting in or near the Twin Cities metropolitan area. In addition to regular day rides, TCBC also recognizes and provides mileage credit for certain other types of rides, including outreach rides and overnight trips. To ensure that these special rides are available to all TCBC members, advance notice must be provided to members. To ensure that riders have a safe and enjoyable ride for both regular rides and special rides, TCBC also requires that riders on all regular and special rides sign in for each ride, attend a ride briefing at a set time with the ride leader, and wear a properly fitted bicycle helmet. This policy defines the types of special rides and outlines special rules and considerations that apply to these ride categories.
