Want to ride your bike with friendly people at a leisurely pace (when it’s safe to do so) and/or 4. Want to read more books.

This month’s book is Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and we’ll be chatting on Zoom.

It’s Season 2 of the Bike Book Club. We had a lot of fun and read + discussed some great books last year. This year thanks to feedback from many of you, I am adding in some fiction books as well. It’s a chance for you to meet some new people, go on a bike ride (when it’s safe to do so), and discuss a book you may not have read before. Why not join us?
