DEC Saturday Morning Ride

Needs a location

This ride meets every Saturday morning and will leave from Bicycle Gallery most of the time.

This is an intermediate ride averaging 18-20 MPH for a distance of approx 40-50 miles.
Ride departs at 8:00 AM.
Ride will be canceled in the event of wet roads.

"101" Ride

Needs a location

This ride goes onto Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, so bring a valid government issued ID card. We will ride 25-30 miles with a target average speed of 15-17 mph. This does not mean a maximum speed of 17 mph; cruising speeds may be higher as conditions allow. Speed and/or distance may be increased if all riders present are capable. While this is a no drop beginner group ride, it is not suitable for riders who aren't capable of averaging over 14 mph for 20+ miles on their own. Please ensure that you are adequately prepared, as it is unfair for the rest of the group if you cannot maintain the minimum pace.
