Road Ride Schedule for 1/1/2022 - through 1/29/2022
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 currently scheduling one road ride each weekend, normally on Saturday. However, on the 29th, we’re having three rides in one. One B pace ride, which will be a typical CBC type of pace at 15 – 17 mph, a C ride, which will average around 12 – 14 mph, and a D ride at 10 – 12 mph. The C/D rides will not include the out-n-back at Sugar Hollow. We hope to see new faces. We’ll be adding even more C/D paced rides in February. So grab your friends and come on out!
For details on how group rides are categorized, check out the Ride Classification guidelines.
Depending on the weather, we may change the day or start times for these rides. If so, we’ll send out an update via email for those of you we have on our list, plus post to our Facebook Group, with as much notice as circumstances permit. We hope to see you there!
As we head into Spring 2022, 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!
Please have the route on your phone or bike computer, and/or have a map or cue sheet.

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.
Finally, we recommend that you to be able to ride at an average speed of at least 14-15 miles per hour over 25-30 miles or more. If you aren’t yet at that level, or aren’t sure if you are, see the New Rider Information page for suggestions.
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.
