A group: Average speeds of 20+ mph on the World Famous Saturday Ride and Gene Kelly Ride, 23+ mph on Wednesday Worlds. This group is for those who can comfortably finish at the front of B rides and take their fair share of pulls. There may be no designated leader on these rides.
B group: Average speeds of 18-20 mph. There may be no designated leader on these rides.
We offer the following four guided group ride levels, and all regroup:
C group: Tempo-paced rides with average speeds on flats >20 mph and average pace times over hilly routes of >15 mph. Varying Saturday ride routes of 40-50 miles. Minimal stoppage times, less frequent regrouping.
D group: Endurance-paced rides with average speeds on the flats in the 16-18 mph range with emphasis on building climbing skills, not necessarily hammering those hills. Varying Saturday ride routes of 40-50 miles. Set stoppage points to allow for differing speeds, but will be limited to keep the overall pace of the group.
E group (2nd & 4th Saturdays only): Shorter endurance-paced rides (30-40 miles) with average speeds in the 12-15 mph range with an overall emphasis on building riding skills: using your gears, pacing, riding safely in traffic. Re-grouping as necessary to allow for differing speeds, but will be limited to keep the overall pace of the group. You should be able ride 12 miles in one hour on your own before joining these rides. If you’re unsure, please start with the Beginner-3rd Saturday ride.
3rd Saturday Beginner ride: For cyclists who are new to riding or who are looking to get back out on the bike. This ride is approximately 20 miles long and can be shortened/lengthened depending on the group’s needs. This is a no-drop ride.
