What we're about

Formerly Jupiter Recreational Bicycle Club. This is a club for people who enjoy riding bikes...on and off road, all levels of riders. Everyone is welcome. If you are just starting out and want to enjoy the sport with other like minded people, this is the place. This group is for the very beginner up to the mega extreme rider. We post all types of different rides, and break up into groups when appropriate.

Any member may post a ride. All you need to do is request for me to make you an organizer! We appreciate our event leaders because we recognize the planning and hosting takes time and effort. We want to be able to offer a variety of activities so we need all the volunteer leaders we can get! :) All we ask is that you know the route and provide adequate details, ie: the time and place the ride begins, a brief description of the ride, the approximate distance and speed you would like to ride, and what to bring (snack, spare tube, etc). Be clever and adventurous. Prizes given to those who can beat Dave's creativity. :) Also, if another meetup has an event that is similar in nature to our events, feel free to also advertise it on our meetup. We're all about bringing people, riders and the community together.

Dyer Park Trail Biking

Location visible to members

Have you ever wanted to try trail biking? It can be fun and challenging and a whole different experience than road biking. This ride is for newbies and those who enjoy the trails. Dyer Park’s MTB course is considered a great starting course. This course is entirely in the woods (aka shade) with small inclines and a narrow twisting trail. No challenging jumps or long hills. It will have some tight spaces between the trees and roots to traverse but a great introductory course for trail biking. A mountain bike with wide tires is required with suspension recommended. Bring a helmet and eye protection and plenty of water. We will take stops and maintain an introductory pace. Meet at the first pavilion after entering the park at 8:15 and pedals up at 8:30. Ride at your risk. Please enroll as a member so we know everyone attending.

Grassy Waters - the Big Loop. Moderate pace. 28 miles with shorter options.

This ride will be mostly on dirt ranger tracks and canal banks with occasional roots and/or snakes posing as roots. Asphalt neihborhood roads and concrete sidewalks for the remainder. Some of these trails are very sandy in the dry season so this time of year will be good. It will be a good workout, bring plenty of water, snacks and a WELL-FITTED HELMET. It is a big loop of about 28 miles. Slower riders may opt for a shorter ride by turning back at any point. Our pace will be 8mph on the dirt and about 14mph on the asphalt. There will be several selfie stops along the way. Q - What type of bike will I need for this event? A - See above description of the terrain. Most wimpy folks like me will be comfortable with fat tires 2.0 inch with front or full suspension. Having said that, nobody will be laughed at based on their bike type. We'll meet at Grassy Waters Preserve main parking lot near the toilets. Call English Dave[masked] if lost or late. There are no further toilets along the way, however there is plenty of cover and leader will have the latrine tool available. We ride East on Northlake sidewalk, into the Owahee Trail and head South to the Grassy Waters Southern boundary. Then West on the levee which eventually turns North. Then we come to the M Canal and turn West and ride the canal bank till we come out on SR 7. At that point the dirt ends and we wind our way North through some quiet neighborhood roads back to the Northlake sidewalk and then East back to the cars. Bossy Boots says: We are each riding at our own risk! Safety is our #1 concern. YOU MUST BE A MEETUP MEMBER. NO GUESTS. Bring a LOT of water if you are planning to do the entire loop. The pace will pick up at the end, please pace yourself accordingly. Did I mention - you must wear a well-fitting helmet. Safety hints: 1. ride at your own pace, it is better to go slow and get completely lost than to over-exert yourself and become a statistic. Put my phone number into your contacts. 2. stay away from other riders in the group. Group riding is more dangerous than solo. Never race. Never tailgate anyone. Either rider can become seriously injured. Ask me how I know this. If anyone is tailgating you, invite them to pass. 3. Announcements. If you see any hazard or are stopping, please announce as much 3 times, example "Glass glass glass" or "Stopping stopping stopping". This is to prevent accidents as your bike has no brake light. NOT EVERY HAZARD will be called however! See hint #2.
