This will be a ride of approximately 45/35/25 miles according to which version of the route you ride. You are responsible for printing your own copy of the map(s). Note that there are two route maps – the ride leader will announce whether the route will be ridden in the normal or reverse direction prior to riding dependent on the wind.
There will usually be three pace groups. The “Fast” or A Group riding at an average pace of 18+mph, the “Strong” or B Group riding at an average pace of 16-17mph, and the “Moderate” or C Group riding at an average pace of 14-15mph.
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.
