Novice & Casual Road Rides – 6:00pm – Waterworks Park

May 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Monday, repeating until September 16, 2019

Novice

Novice rides are an ideal starting place for beginner riders who are new to road cycling and are interested in learning the skill of group riding. Novice riders will be coached progressively. First, basic cycling skills such as gearing, clipping in/out, hand signals and communication  will be introduced. Then group riding skills such as drafting, as well as riding and rotating in formation. We utilize paved rail trail and gradually make our way onto the quieter country roads to practice road riding skills.

Schedule: Mondays 6:00pm

Distance: 25-35km (mix of paved rail trail and road)

Pace: 23-27km/hour

 

 

Casual

Casual Road Rides are ideal for laid-back road cyclists who want to get out for an enjoyable spin at a comfortable pace and catch up with friends.  It’s more about recreation than pace, speed, or formation riding. During these rides, riders will stick together in small groups and utilize safe cycling practices. This ride differs from our Novice Road Ride because there will not be too much emphasis on learning formation or pace line riding skills. As with all of our road rides, you are expected to know and abide by safe riding etiquette and rules of the road.

Schedule: Mondays 6:00pm

Distance: 25-30km (mix of paved rail trail and road)

Pace: 24-26km/hour
