Now about us
Whether you live in the area or are just visiting Boise and looking for a group to ride with, we'd love to have you join us on any of our rides! See above for our start locations and departure times whether you're looking to pick up a road ride or break out the nobbies.
Our motto is "leave no one behind" and our group rides are no-drop.
For your full enjoyment of our weekly rides though, we strongly suggested the following riding ablilties/considerations:
Tuesday Night Hill Climb: Pace range: 16 to 22 MPH down Hill Road plus the desire to climb hills for fun and training.
Wednesday Night MTB ride: All skill levels with the ability to ride the Foothill Trails and Eastside. Distance: 10 to 15 miles.
Wednesday Night Beginner Ladies' Road Ride: How do I ride in a group? How do I change a tire? Join the Spinderellas for this ladies' beginner ride to learn skills and make friends. Distance: 15 to 25 miles (1-1.5 hours).
Thursday Night Social Ride: Pace range: 15 to 18 MPH on mostly flat roads. Distance: 20 to 25 miles. Thursday night rides are social rides, followed by dinner and drinks at a local watering hole. This ride is perfect for new riders or those that would like to check out our club. Emphasis is placed on helping new riders learn how to be good group riders. As our group has expanded over the years, expect the ride to start in two or more packs, several minutes apart. This isn't a race, folks, but a way to separate our riders into groups that can be better managed on the road – both for us as cyclists and for drivers.
Saturday Morning Group ride: Pace range: 18 to 22 MPH. Rolling hills possible. Distance: Anywhere from: 40 to 100 miles. There's generally a long and short option on Saturday (distances depend on the make up of the group) and the pace is held down until the split. You decide how far you want to go!. Saturday mornings, we typically all start together and then break into two groups about 20 miles into the ride. The "long" group pedals 65 to 100 miles, and the "short" group typically rides 40 to 65 miles.
