SCUM Rides

Sounds bad, but the rides are fun. A clean group of well-attired men (who self-describe as “elderly and harmless”). Women have been known to participate and are not discouraged. You’ll have to attend a SCUM ride to find out where the name “SCUM” comes from. Spoiler: It’s not as scary as it sounds.

  • Who: All are welcome. (Especially if they bring zucchini bread!)
  • What: Road rides. Usually last between 1.5 and 2 hours. Pace is 15-18mph.
  • When: Sundays (10am start) and Wednesdays (5pm start)
  • Where: Meet at the Patty Center parking lot on the University of Alaska campus. (Look for the bikes.) Ride schedule below (though the ride route may change, depending upon who shows up).
