Courteous Mass is an event – an urban cycling ride through Dayton. The ride is free – all you need to bring is a bike.

Rides are the first Friday of every month. Gather starting a little after 5:00 pm. We ride at 5:30.

Gathering Spot: Plaza in front of Fifth Third Field (Dragons stadium) – Monument at Patterson.

The area features great terrain and natural assets, including beautiful hardwoods, a rock-bottom creek, great hills and rock-filled ridge. Volunteers can help maintain this trail that provides over 8 miles of mountain biking opportunities for the most advanced to the novice rider.
