This is the weekly fast pace road ride which will be leaving from Zach’s Bikes.
Our typical route will be to do loops at the Running Y, getting there and returning on Lakeshore Ave. with a finish at Rodeo’s Pizza. We will be alternating the route with Clockwise loops at Running Y, Counter-clockwise loops at Running Y and Tingley-Cross-Hill road loops. For the current Schedule see our Strava Club page.
Expect an average of 19 to 23 mph depending on who shows up and the current conditions. Our normal route is designed in such a way that we stop (or slow down) to regroup several times throughout the ride (as we complete loops). While this is intended to be a fast paced hammer-fest ride, we try not to leave anybody behind. A good rule of thumb is that if you get dropped more than twice, plan on finishing the ride on your own. Use it as a carrot on a stick to keep up longer each week if you’re finding yourself off the back regularly.
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). Also Make sure you know the route well enough to get home. These routes were intentionally picked with the ease of bail-out options in mind. Have fun and stay safe!
