Let's meet at the Trexlertown Velodrome for a 16-20 mile ride. This ride is geared to riders who are new to group cycling or just more casual cyclists.

As in the past, we'll focus on safety, group cycling etiquette, communication and all aspects of proper bike handling skills.

Before joining this ride, you should be able to complete a 16 mi ride in ~ 80 minutes. A road bike & helmet are required.

Please make sure you bike is in good working order (e.g. tires and brakes are in good condition, tires are properly inflated, etc.)

Just look for the Red Prius in the Velodrome parking lot by the Red Barn.

Needs a location

Leaving Velo promptly, ride out to Topton and loop back - 14-15 mph, no rider left behind….Note: I don’t post the ride, I try to watch traffic patterns and try to stay off busy roads! staying as a group, riding 2x2, taking a pull, and…staying away from the yellow line. Note: vehicles on the roads have more respect when bicyclists follow road rules! Please be sure to have headlamp and back blinky!
