Our group is sometimes lost in the crowd so look for us near the portico at the front door area. Not UNDER it, but in front of it.
There are three rides:
1) There is a 20 mile no drop ride for all levels.
2) There is an intermediate 30 miler (15-16 MPH) - this is where most of us ride and no worries on the pace, actually. We usually trail in towards the end of this bunch. Even if you ride 13 - 14 MPH you'll be fine.
3) The "big dawgs" don't say how fast they ride. If you have to ask...then don't!
This is a GREAT, mostly flat ride with a 2 mile STEEP hill at the turn-around point that many of us skip for about a 28.5 length ride. Hill lovers (freaks!) will put in right at 30 miles.
We try to gather as a group at 8:15 and always seed into groups according to pace. Ride rolls sharply at 8:30.
