This MeetUp is for moderate-level road cyclists interested in rides between 20 and 50 miles. The majority will be in the 20-25 mile range in the Bethlehem area. The primary goal is to get fresh air for a few hours, and to find other cyclists who like to ride on the road in an easygoing, social group.
The expected speed will average in the 14-16 mph range, so probably best to have a road bike, though people have been known to do that on hybrids. Depending on growth we may schedule some more leisurely rides. Any member can post a ride they’re interested in.
This isn’t intended to be a diehard group and speed is not our primary goal; it’s more focused on getting outside, meeting other cyclists, and using our love of cycling as a great way to see many of the superb locations in our area. Typically we’ll ride and then go somewhere close by for a bite or a drink, or hang out in the park & ride.
The first rides will be scheduled in the Bethlehem area and south, but we’re always glad to expand later as we learn of good rides in the Ballston Spa, Saratoga, and Adirondack areas too.
Join us if you like to ride the roads in the Delmar/Bethlehem area!
Disclaimers:Unfortunately, need to include some obvious stuff.
This is not a club, but a social group, so every rider rides at their own risk, just like you do every day. If the rides get too popular, we may have to limit the size or break into sub-groups (but we don’t have the problem yet!). :-)
