This ride is a great fit for the intermediate rider who has spent some time on the bike riding in groups and on urban roads, but is looking for a bit more challenge in distance and speed. This no drop, co-ed ride averages 15-16mph and covers on average 30-35 miles on in-town bike routes and/or on roads with low to moderate traffic. Riders for this group should have experience riding in groups, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues and understand the etiquette of group riding.
This 35 mile ride begins with a roll out SOCO (South Congress Avenue). The group continues riding south and east to Creedmoor travelling varied terrain. Riders pass an exotic wildlife ranch and spend some time on the old Tuesday Nighter course. There are wonderful views of the city atop the rolling hills along this route.
General group ride expectation: helmet, bike in good working condition, water and nutrition, flat changing tools, no headphones, park in the street
For pre-ride coffee or snack, meet at Juan Pelota Café a half hour before ride time.
