The final Fiver of 2017. Presented by Steed Cycles.

New addition to the Fiver will be a Social Ride and Kids Ride. If you don't want to race, come on out and join for a ride.

Sing in for the Fiver will open at 10am to 11am at the Parking lot on Fromme.

Social Ride and Kids Ride will sign in at 10:45 in the Parking Lot on Fromme.

All Fiver and Social Riders need to be NSMBA members. Kids will not need to be member, but hopefully parents already are. Waiver will need to be signed for all Social and Kid's riders.

Social Ride is $5 same as the Fiver and gets you access to the apres at Steed.
