Global Bikes Road Ride 36 Mile, Mild pace

Moderate ride through Gilbert and Mesa:

  • Help newer road riders learn road riding etiquette and safety tips.
  • Help folks who want to get stronger and prepare for a little longer distance.
  • Lessen intimidation and help newer riders learn where they are with stamina/endurance.
  • Improve confidence with clipless pedals, learning to drink while riding and steadiness.
  • ALL without the worry of being dropped or unable to manage a flat.

This ride will be at an easy pace of 15 mph and a distance of 36 miles from Global Bikes in Gilbert and back depending on the group.

Riders should:

  • Be sure to eat a light breakfast of toast/peanut butter or oatmeal
  • Wear a helmet and bring a road bike
  • Bring plenty of water (a hydration pack is best!) and a spare tube
  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Be prepared for two-three hours of riding
  • Arrive 15 minutes early and be sure to pump up tires

Ride host for the beginner ride is Global Bike's very own David Sanders w/Will Foster riding sweep. 

Here's the route that we did last time....

    Great morning for a brisk, cool ride up into the Las Sendas area to work on the hills with a good group of cyclist. Thanks to GB's, Mike for leading and to Garrett for the sweep.
    "Atta-girl!" to Linda for hanging tuff with the guys! :-)

    Suggestion - think about moving the start time closer to sunrise, 7am or 7:30am. =)

      Overall I agree. I think a part of the issue may be that David who is leading the ride ALSO has to work\open the shop at 10:00AM. This doesn't leave much time In between if we start later.

    Some riders suggested that on Sundays ride, not a bad idea.
