A road ride of about 20-25 miles at moderate pace. Route will vary depending on the experience level of the group, so that the ride is fun for all! We can also provide route options, for those that need to cut the ride short. We start and finish at Zach's Bikes (sometimes we finish at Rodeo's pizza!!! (optional) - it's down the street)
If you feel that you might not be fast enough or intimidated, don't be! This is the ride for you!
This ride is meant to get those interested into road cycling an opportunity to ride with a group, or for the veteran rider that just wants a moderate/fun paced social ride.
This is a no-drop ride (no one is left behind). If the group breaks up, we always re-group at the most natural stopping place, or the next turn, so NO ONE is lost or left behind. Expect a range of average speeds between 10-13 mph for the slower group, and 14-17 mph for the quicker group.
Please note that this is a road ride, riding a hybrid style bike or a mountain bike will make it difficult for you to keep up with the group.
If you don't have a road bike, or would like to demo one of our Trek Emonde road bikes, Zach's Bikes will let you use one, free of charge depending on availability. You will need to RSVP for the ride and call Zach's Bikes to reserve a demo bike and will need to arrive early so they can set you up (basic fitting, installation of pedals, etc.)
Please bring water, flat kits and lights (remember: a helmet might reduce your chance of injury, but a rear blinky light will prevent a crash all-together). Have fun and stay safe!
Hope to see you there!
