NOTE THE 9:00 AM START TIME
This is a 45 mile ride through NW Boulder, stopping at Chautauqua Park, and continuing back to 300 Suns via Gunbarrel and Niwot
For the full route see:
WHO: This is a road bike ride for people who have experience riding on the road with traffic. Please only sign up if you are confident you can complete the above described ride/route (distance, pace, etc.).
WHAT: The Club rides are "NO DROP" (except for the A group), we will re-group at the top of hills, and at any turns where necessary
While the rides are social/group rides (not a race) it's important for everyone to know the route in case you get unhitched/separated. Have it on your bike computer, a paper copy or just memorize it.
If you are at the front of the group you become the group leader and it is your responsibility to initiate a regroup by stopping or significantly slowing. Riders that start with a group and are not able to keep up the pace should consider dropping back to the next slower group (which will come along in due time) so as to not impede the group you are with. This is why we have the slowest group start last.
This group will be at a faster pace (18+mph average).
DROP / NO-STOP
This group will be at a medium/fast pace (17 to 18 mph average).
NO-DROP / WILL REGROUP
This group will be at a medium pace (15 to 17 mph average).
NO-DROP / WILL REGROUP
- Rides roll out no more than 5 minutes after advertised start time, please arrive early & be ready to roll on time.
- Come prepared for mechanical breakdowns (bring spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, multi-tool).
- Be sure to bring enough water for the length of the ride. As a general rule, one bottle of water is good for 1 hour of riding (8 oz per 20 mins of ride time).
