In the following list our riding area has been divided into 4 quadrants (NW, NE, SW, SE), and maps are listed alphabetically by the start location. Our schedulers rotate rides around these 4 quadrants. The designations are fuzzy, of course, along the axes, so if you feel a ride has been categorized in the wrong quadrant (or have updates/corrections to the route) we welcome your email to: maps@nbwclub.org

* Maps marked with an asterisk indicate rides that have not been scheduled in at least 10years; these old maps need scouting for road changes before riding.

Disclaimer: These maps may not fully match the arrowed rides or reflect current road conditions. We realize that road conditions change constantly and maps become outdated; if you encounter any inaccuracies on the map or can suggest improvements, please send email to Monica Foulkes Our arrowers work hard to have the rides arrowed by the scheduled ride dates; before or after those dates you should ride by the map. Our arrowers may modify the route according to existing conditions, to avoid road construction or other hazards. As always, use caution and common sense when riding you ride at your own risk.
