  • Bay Area Cycling

     I've only done two rides, Napa Valley and Pescadero, so my impressions are of a too small sampling...but you asked: 1). Franny is a VERY strong rider. When she states a pace of 14-18, plan on the 18 or higher. 2) So far the people that I've met are both very nice, and very strong riders. 3). If you're new, or not quite as strong, plan on time trialing, the two rides I have done turned into a hammerfest pretty quickly (I'm 61, it doesn't take much to peg my meter) 4). You may need every minute of the 10 minute waits at the top of major climbs or route turns just to catch back on. 5). New riders might be better served by finding a local no drop or more social club ride. Bear in mind, these are very cool people, they're just really damn fast, so manage your expectations accordingly.

     Great group 

    Mark K. on Jul 8, 2012.

  • Bay Area Cycling

     Our first ride with a Meetup having a very large membership. Looking forward to meeting other organizers (and to riding with Mike G. again). Excellent social atmosphere, with everyone very relaxed about cycling at this level. This ride--identified in essence as having an easy route and pace and being for beginners--was much more confidence-giving than another we tried with a bigger flock of beginners and easy riders who were often inattentive and endangering for those around them (fellow cyclists and otherwise). Whether Mike's selectivity or his clearly declared expectations should get the credit, I can't say, but this beginner's ride was expertly envisioned and conducted. With such a large Meetup group, the prospects are excellent with BAC for diverse and successful riding experiences! 

    Tom F. on Jun 17, 2012.

  • Bay Area Cycling

     The Meetup group is good, while tahe jury is still out on riding here. I will say it's much safer than Nyc where I moved from. 

    john r. on Aug 15, 2011.

  • Bay Area Cycling

     Great idea, for varied cycling styles. Anyone can set up a ride therefore anyone can set up a ride that fits a specific location and skill/endurance level. This makes bay area cycling potentially more inclusive to a wide demographic of people. Works. 

    Michael C. on Aug 15, 2011.

    Janelle on Feb 21, 2011.

  • Bay Area Cycling

     I've enjoyed riding with the people I've met. I'd like to see more people respond to ride notices. I suspect there may be a lot of sleepers in the group. I was a member for two years before joining group rides.
