A group for cyclists that would like to find others to organise training rides in and around Paris.
We generally organise one or two longish rides per weekend, the longer rides (100-150km) sometimes get a chain-gang or something higher tempo, while the shorter rides (50-70km) for the less experienced riders are beautiful days out and a good workout on the bike. We also hold regular speed and fitness sessions at the Longchamps circuit, for all fitness levels.
Depending on the route chosen for the ride, we'll generally leave from meeting points in Paris or from train stations outside the city. We also post meetups for groups to get together for sportives, for longer rides around the country and for social meet-ups.
Because we ride together and we want to prevent anyone from getting dropped or lost, we prefer to have riders of similar strengths together on a ride. So please take note of the speed and details of rides that are posted, and check if the ride matches your experience/fitness. If you're unsure, please ask, or post a mesage on the announcement page (e.g. you'll need a good level of fitness and a racing bike for the longer or faster rides, but not for the slower or shorter rides).
Cycling can be a dangerous sport, and we encourage riders joining our rides to WEAR A HELMET. The Paris Cycling Group, the PCG organizers, the ride leaders and the PCG members will not accept any responsibility for accidents or injuries to riders or equipment under any circumstances or for any reasons (unless otherwise required by law).
Feel free to add your own rides and use the Group just to meet others. Any member of the Group can suggest a new ride or other event at any time through the Meetup site.
