Ocean View Road Bike Ride (20 miles) through Stonington and Mystic

This is a 20 mile ride advanced beginner pace through Mystic and Stonington.

On the way out we have a fun paced ocean view, we will start from the Mystic Village, then head eastbound on Rt. 1 to explore Mason's Island, Enders Island, then onto Stonington Borough all the way to the beach, then loop back to the Mystic Village.  Our pace is 10-18mph (10 uphill, 18 downhill), up to 2 hours of riding.

To start, look for the red and black meet-up signs (and bikes) in the Mystic Village parking lot near the Cinemas (has big sign, can't miss it). Please arrive by 5:45 so we can start before 6:00.

Helmets are mandatory.  Bring plenty of water to hydrate, maybe a snack.

Road Bikes and hybrids are suggested. If you have a trail bike, maybe try borrowing or renting.

If we're up to it afterwards, perhaps we can share a bite and beverage next door at the Steak Loft.

    I really wanted to do this, but honestly I can't justify the drive for just a couple of hours of riding (I'm from the Hartford area). :( Maybe another time.

    I'm interested in joining in, but I have a hybrid. As such, an average of 18mph might be too much for me.

      Hi Mari, welcome to the event. I also have a hybrid. Having ridden with some of these members before, I think avg speed will be more in the 10 to 14 mph range and the 18 refers more to a downhill dash. Should there be a big difference in performance levels in participants, we can always break up into smaller groups. Or even hybrid vs road bike groups. No one gets left behind.

      Thanks. That is heartening. Weather permitting, I will definitely try to join you all tomorrow!
