Why did you joing this group?

Want to make friends with people who share my interest in riding. I also joined TCBM and have done some rides with them. I have some regular biking companions from work, but their interest in and time available for riding seems to be less than mine, so I have ended up riding solo quite a bit. That's ok sometimes, but would prefer doing more rides with other people.

What are you hoping to gain?

Meet people and enjoy the outdoors.

What kind of cycling do you prefer?

What I like best is riding on paved trails with beautiful scenery, but I am not averse to riding on roads either. Occasionally do unpaved trails such as the LRT from Hopkins to Excelsior or Eden Prairie. No mountain biking. I enjoy riding at a moderate to faster pace; my average speed is around 15 mph on longer rides (40 miles), and more for shorter rides of 20 miles or less. I have ridden happily with people who were about 13 mph riders, but I probably wouldn't want to go much slower than that. So far this summer I have done 4 rides that were 60 miles or more.


I love bike riding and like to ride 4-5 days a week.
