Road rides are the biggest rides we organize – with upwards of 80 people at the peak of the season on Tuesday nights. Each of the following weekly road rides is designed with different riders and objectives in mind.
Our most populate ride. Designed to test and increase your fitness through higher speed double pace line riding and climbing around a 17km looped course. Don’t feel too intimidated. There are 5 different levels or groups which ride at different paces and distances. 1 = racer. 5 = novice.
The Bamberg Loop will be used each year until the end of June, after which the format will change to a road ride similar in nature to the Thursday Night Road Ride. Routes will be determined weekly.
For those new to cycling and who want to learn the basics skills of group riding before graduating to the Tuesday night “huff & puff” ride. Registration is NOT required for this program.
Upon completion of the 6 week Learn to Group Ride program this ride will change to be a recreational ride allowing participants to continue growing their group riding skills, work on fitness or just have a great time riding with friends.
