group rideLooking to stretch your legs with a fun but challenging mid-week ride? Want to hone your group riding skills? Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month from May through September for a group ride. There will be two distinct groups (A and B) that follow the same route and are both NO DROP meaning we will regroup at the top of all significant climbs. These are roadie style rides, but all are welcome in whatever attire you like. Meet at 6pm, grab a coffee from Phoenix and get ready. Ride departs at 6:30 SHARP. Here are the details –


A Group Details

Expect cruising speeds of approximately 20mph – 24mph on the flats, and we’ll ask you not break 25mph on a flat road. “No Drop” means if you can’t keep up on the hills the group will wait for you at the designated points. However, if you can’t stay with the group on flat terrain then consider building your fitness up with the B group. If the pace is too hot, know that the B group will be along to sweep you up. General group skills/etiquette is expected, but guidance will be offered to those who need some.

B Group Details

Similar to A group, but a little slower, with speeds on the flats ranging from 16mph – 19mph. Riders are asked not to exceed 20mph on a flat road. This is a good group for people new to group riding and looking to learn the skills you’ll need as you move on to bigger/faster groups.
