A listing of a few of the various GREEN BEAN endurance riding groups on the web/and facebook.
Bean is a social movement of people willing to help new
endurance riders, and the new riders themselves. The following is a
list of groups and links to find them. These groups offer a safe harbor
for new riders to learn & grow in their distance riding journey.
Join one or all to interact with a fabulous group of riders and mentors
in the sport.
