2018 Root Beer Ride Series

Spring is finally here, the clocks have sprung, and the first Blackwater Bike Shop Root Beer Ride starts Monday April 2nd!! If you've been, you know how fun this ride can be.

When/Where: Meet at the shop and be ready for the ride to start at 6pm every Monday from April 2nd through the end of August.

The Root Beer Ride is our most popular group ride. The route is 22 miles of rolling terrain and does stop to regroup at all intersections. Check our website link under the "Ride Maps" tab to see the course. (There is only a full-course sweeper for the 22 mile loop).

Please bring a rear flashing light to increase visibility at the end of the ride. All levels are welcome as this is a social ride! Beginners are strongly encouraged but a road bike is recommended for this ride- you'll have a blast! Helmets are required. Tell a friend or four! And needing a tune-up is no excuse.....there's still time to get you ready to ride with fast turn-around on repairs!

Arrive in time to leave promptly at 6pm every Monday!

The ride makes one of the regrouping stops at Monkee Joes on Perrowville Rd (formerly Sonic) so bring a few bucks if you like to get something refreshing as we near the end of the ride! And they DO have root beer floats!

The ride meets at the shop! There is plenty of parking behind the building.

Stop by or call us if you have questions about the ride. And yes.... YOU can do it!

Hope to see you on your bike soon!
