How long have you been riding? (it's ok to be brand new, this group started for beginners and it is still a large focus)
What are your cycling goals? i.e. I just want to learn to ride better, I want to learn group riding, I am planning to do my first triathlon/bike race, etc... We are here for you whatever your goals are!
This group is run and provided for by certified USA Cycling coaches that work with a lot of first time cyclists. I have discovered that a lot of people buy bicycles only to have them gather dust in the garage simply because they
have no one to ride with
are intimidated by shifting gears
do not know the basics of cycling safety
We are here to help you and this group was originally started specifically for "Beginner Cyclists" but has become much more in a very short time.
The purpose of this group is
to help entry level beginner cyclists learn all the basics of cycling
understand and practice safe riding in groups and road safety
basic bicycle maintenance, such as tire repair, flat avoidance, etc
how to gain greater enjoyment from their bicycles
how to meet their fitness goals.
to change the cycling culture from the ground up by encouraging riders to communicate, interact with traffic in a safe manner and be ambassadors in general for the cycling community.
This group is for people who
are brand new to cycling or group riding* and want to learn to ride with a group and the rules
