2019 WEEKLY RIDE DESCRIPTIONS

Our motto is "leave no one behind" and most of our group rides are no-drop.


 

Tuesday Hill Climb: For anyone who wants to improve their climbing skills on the Dump

Loop, Bogus, or Willow Creek routes. New routes coming this year! 

Wednesday Mountain Bike Ride: An old favorite back this year. This ride will usually leave from the North End and will feature routes for all skill levels.

Thursday Social Ride: Our most popular ride of the week! Pace range: 16-18 MPH* - but based on the slowest riders. Type: This is a no-drop social, group ride, perfect for new riders or those that would like to check out the club. Followed by eats and drinks at a local watering hole.
Distance: Typically 20 to 25 miles, on mostly 
flat roads with occasional short hills.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a fast ride, nor a hard workout ride, and we ride in one group (or when rider count dictates, two groups a few minutes apart). If you'd like a faster ride, feel free to let ride leader know at the start that you will not be riding with the group, and we'll see you at the finish. Otherwise, all riders are expected to stay together for the duration of the ride.


Saturday Ride: Our most aggressive ride of the week. Pace range: 18 to 22 MPH*. Rolling hills likely. Distance: Anywhere from: 34 to 100 miles. Group typically starts together and then breaks into two groups about 20 miles into the ride. The “long” group pedals 65 to 100 miles, and the “short” group typically rides 34 to 65 miles.


Sunday No Stress Ride: An option for riders to get some saddle time in a no stress environment and for new, inexperienced riders to learn and improve riding skills. Two groups - Group 1 "No Stress" - Pace range: 16 to 18 MPH*. Distance 20 to 30 miles. Group 2 "Slower No Stress" - Pace range: 10 to 16 MPH*. Distance 10 to 20 miles.
