This is an intermediate & advanced level ride, so please be prepared to ride 48 miles with around 3,500 feet of climbing.
Intermediate: Moderately-paced, mixed length rides (30-50 miles) with average speeds on the flats in the 16-18 mph range with emphasis on building climbing skills, not necessarily hammering those hills. Set stoppage points and time-lengths to allow for differing speeds, but will be limited to keep the pace.
Advanced: Fast-paced, longer rides generally >40 miles with average speeds on flats >20 mph and average pace times over hilly routes >15 mph. Minimal stoppage times. Many of the women who ride in this group regularly participate in centuries.
