Previous known as Novice Rides, these rides are for everyone, but are particularly beneficial for new riders who are still getting used to their bikes, don’t quite know how to use those gears yet, and who could take advantage of some of that wonderful knowledge that the experienced riders can share with them.
New This Year
Each night before heading out on these rides, the ride leader will take about 10 minutes to “share some knowledge” and answer questions either about bike maintenance, safety, group riding, or any number of other things. This is the time to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask before. This week we’re talking Proper Bike Helmet Fitting.
Easy Group Riding
The routes are meant to be easy. The pace will be set by those who are in attendance and nobody will get left behind. In the spirit of “group” ride we will travel together in a group. To make these rides the huge success that they were last year, we rely on support from our experienced folks who are happy to mentor others.
These are the rides where you can set yourself some goals for the season. If you are brand new to cycling, start out going 15 or 20k and work your way up to some longer distances as the season progresses.
