    Thanks Todd, but this chilly weather caused me to change my mind and ride later today. I’ll meet up with you guys another day. Have fun!

      I’ll be there. Just when we are getting used to balmy weather it’s back to the tights and jackets.

    Hi, do you know of an option to shorten this ride by 5 or so miles? I am a “C” rider and will be there in the AM.

      A couple of options… At mile 13.5-ish, eliminate the South River loop by turning right (instead of left) on Octonia, then left on 230 (can be a little trafficky) to rejoin the route. Should take off 3 miles or so. Alternatively, you could cut more miles by staying straight on Main at mile 12.5, and picking up the route at HW33 (also with fast traffic, but wide shoulder). Note that both options eliminate nice parts of the course.

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.
