This ride is for the TRUE beginner, who has basic road riding skills, but wants to increase mileage and speed.
Road bikes only please
We'll be leaving the shop promptly at 6:00, traveling towards the back of Island Lake, then headed through the park roads to the well-known "Green Dumpster" and back - approx 12 - 15 miles. Those ready for more will group up to do more mileage to satisfy their cycling need! The pace for this ride will range from 10 – 15+ mph to accommodate the men and women who chose to attend each week. All level riders are welcome at this pace. The plan is to split into a couple ride groups to help facilitate the variance of speeds. We will have a sweep to bring up the rear – someone has to be the end of the train ;-)

Please make sure you have some experience riding the bike you bring to the group ride and are comfortable with the way it handles. You should also have some basic shifting and braking skills for the safety of the other group riders. After that, our friendly ride support are more than happy to help you learn a few tips to make the hills easier and the flats faster – just ask!
