Club Ride - All Speeds
Registration is not Required

Everyone needs to plan on arriving 15 minutes before the ride is scheduled to ROLL OUT.

Meet at Johnson’s Corner Grocery & Grill (and gas station) at the corner of US421 and NC210 – as going to Moore’s Creek.

This will be a ride of approximately 50 miles with a store (well) past the halfway point – a few miles past the ferry (ferry# 910-669-2020). A longer metric century option is available. You are responsible for printing your own copy of the map for this ride. Do not expect the ride leader to provide any at the start of the ride. If you do not have facilities to accomplish this, please email a request to the ride leader to possibly make one for you.

There will be at least three pace groups. The “Need for speed” group riding at a pace above 20 mph, the “Middle of the road” group riding at a pace of 17-20 mph, and the “Fun in the sun” group riding at a pace of 14-16 mph. Note that there “WILL” be a 14-16 mph group which will ride a 25-30 mile option led by Jeff Richardson (C) 810-845-5586 and Mike Asselta (C) 585-733-4120. We regroup at convenient points on the route…no one left behind. Weather varies with the season, so dress in layers or apply sunscreen accordingly, and of course, wear a helmet. Bring plenty of beverage & snacks because much of our riding is in rural areas.

First time guest riders are welcome. If you enjoy the experience, pick up a membership form at a local bike shop or download a membership form from the website. Your membership not only supports the club and cycling advocacy, but also extends insurance coverage to you on club rides and entitles you to discounts at local bike shops.
