Casual Ride Level Chart:
A note about our ride levels. We try to accommodate all levels of cyclists with different types of rides. We just ask that you come to the ride that suits your current riding ability the best.
Introductory Level : If you haven't ridden a bike in a number of years or are uncertain of your abilities on a bicycle including not knowing how to shift your gears.
Beginner Level : If you can easily ride your bike for 10 miles with some minor hills at a comfortable pace. This is equivalent to riding about 1.5 hours.
Medium Level : If you can do 20 miles pretty easily at a leisurely pace (10+ mph) This is equivalent to riding 3 hours at a steady pace with several breaks.
