NOTE — check our Facebook Page for updates (

We ride year round, usually one or two rides per weekend. Winter rides are usually 10am Saturdays and (sometimes) 10am or 12pm Sundays, although we don’t schedule as far in advance, so we can check the weather and pick the best day for a ride. 

All Proteus rides are essentially social meetups, not competitive or racy. We make every attempt to be honest about ride length and difficulty in advance, though depending on the group/weather/mood, we sometimes adjust our goals.  Rides  are not supported by the shop, however, so please bring tools for changing flat tires, a Metro Farecard or cellphone for if you have an unfixable mechanical problem or otherwise need to be bailed out on the road, food and water and gear for changes in weather, and please take personal responsibility for your own safety and obey all traffic laws and trail rules. We try to ride as a group, and no one is dropped or left behind. There are often cookies or food stops…  -Jeff
