Weekend Warrior 2-Day Option allows those that cannot get off of work the option of joining the ride on the weekend.
Will include Saturday and Sunday itineraries.
The route we have chosen this year allows us to offer this option for the first time so we are pretty excited to have participants join us that otherwise would not have been able to participate.
