This is an invitation-only road cycling group for experienced riders who really want to hone their skills and become better cyclists.
If you don't have experience riding in a paceline or if you can't maintain at least 19 mph by yourself (21 in the paceline), this is not the group for you.
Additionally, we expect members of this group to actually participate in group rides at least once every month. Inactive members will be removed from time to time.
Safety is our first priority. All riders must wear a helmet, practice rules of the road and be able to ride steadily in a paceline. NO PERSONAL LISTENING DEVICES ARE ALLOWED ON GROUP RIDES! NO TRI-BIKES OR AERO BARS ARE PERMITTED IN THE PACELINE! NO EXCEPTIONS!
All rides will be a 21 mph pace (unless otherwise specified) and we expect every member to respect and adhere to this.
PLEASE NOTE: Participation in any Chain Gang event implies that you have read, understand, and agree with the group’s policies.
By taking part in any Chain Gang event, you acknowledge that you realize bicycling has inherent dangers and that you assume responsibility for yourself by participating. This means you recognize and accept responsibility for your actions and understand the potential for injury and even death. We expect new riders to choose a category ride appropriate for their skills.
Per the Electronic Records and Signatures in Commerce Act, if you join this group, you agree to ALL the terms listed.
