Beginners’ ride at Sugar Hollow. No drop. (D, mostly flat)

March 23 @ 5:30 pm

During the last beginners’ ride we saw a pair of river otters and a juvenile eagle. It’s well worth it to go slow!

From the Piedmont Store, this route is an out and back on Sugar Hollow Road. The route has no turns, few cars, and turns around when the road gets steep. Meet at 5:15 for a 5:30 departure. A helmet is required, water, tools and a rear light are recommended. Please make sure your bike is in good working order and fitted to you.

* Please leave a comment below if you plan to attend. Thanks!

NOTE: As of 01/01/2022, we have become a member-supported club.  We encourage all of our cycling friends to join us.  For new riders, our club insurance covers non-members of the club for their first ride only.  Thanks.

We are planning additional rides each week, so stay tuned!  If you are interested in helping to organize a group ride for the Club, please contact us!

For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.

Requirements For Riders

All riders are required to have a helmet; a tail light, Road ID and a rear-view mirror is strongly recommended.  You are also expected to have adequate fluids and a road-worthy bicycle in good repair.  Many rides, but not all, will include the opportunity to stop at a store to replenish supplies.

You should be prepared to fix a flat tire and perform other minor repairs on the road side.  If you are new to cycling and are not comfortable with these procedures, don’t let that stop you.  However, you might want to talk to a more experienced member before the ride so the group is prepared to help if necessary.

Safety On The Road

The club considers safety to be our very highest priority.  Please review the information on the Safety Page before you join us for a ride.

We hope that you will find this site helpful; your questions and comments are welcomed.
