SATURDAY INTRODUCTORY ROAD RIDE: 10:00 AM
The Bike Rack offers a Saturday Introductory Ride to compliment our Sunday ride. This ride meets at the shop at 10:00 am on Saturday and departs by 10:15. Our goal in creating this ride is to offer a safe and non-intimidating place to experience and learn about road cycling. The Saturday ride is strictly an introductory ride and it caters to anyone who prefers a slower pace (12 to 15 mph avg) and a shorter distance (25 to 30 miles) than our intermediate ride. The ride is also perfect for anyone new to group riding and wants to gain some experience before jumping into an intermediate group ride. Although this is an introductory ride, this is a road ride and road bikes are required. It is also manadatory that your bike is in good working condition and you wear a helmet.This ride is led by experienced cyclists. Check out the route here
