Weekend Club Ride-300 (A/B Groups)
WHEN: Club rides take place on Saturdays MOST weekends throughout the riding season, and will leave from one of our sponsors. ROUTE: Route info & map will be posted in the comments by the weeks' ride leaders. 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 GROUP Aero: This group will be at a faster pace (18+mph average) DROP/NO-STOP GROUP Breakaway: This group will be at a medium/fast pace (15 to 18mph average) NO-DROP GROUP Chasers: This group will be at a slower pace, and may follow a shorter route. (14 to 15mph average) NO-DROP Typically Group A & B will be split into A1 & A2/B1 & B2 to keep the group size sensible. The pace range may vary slightly between each A & B group, within the 15-18+ range. 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). RIDE NOTES: 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, especially with warmer weather ahead of us. As a general rule, one bottle of water is good for 1 hour of riding (8oz per 20 mins of ride time).

What we're about

WELCOME to the St. Vrain Chain Gang Cycling Club (SVCG) based in Longmont, Colorado. Our aim is to promote and encourage cycling through a friendly club experience, where camaraderie is developed through group riding.

Our rides generally cater to the Advanced Beginner and Intermediate Road Cyclist, who are looking to improve their skill level. We offer at least 3 rides per week, usually splitting into 2 or 3 groups based on pace. Most our routes typically follow the quietest and most scenic routes in Boulder County and the surrounding areas.

Our goal for all rides is to keep the experience of group riding FUN and SAFE!. We are a recreational cycling club, NOT a race club; by joining our group you are expected to be part of the group, and not treat the rides as a race, or as a solo ride. Please take the time to read over our SVCG Group Riding Safety guide (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1be8xDVC3uh_X9livC34BMrCoXoAdr7oVZlzHfexYBis/edit?usp=sharing).

Before joining/signing up for an SVCG ride, be sure you can ride at the average pace we advertise for each group. If you do not meet this minimum fitness level, unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate you, as it is unfair to all other riders. (A Group Pace = 18+mph Avg, B Group Pace = 14 - 18mph Avg).

If you are a new member and intend to ride with SVCG, please sign our RIDE WAIVER (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1d9FCZ2cwyQ84x8Wktl7ILAzmAThhYdytX5mBv7tD6cQ/viewform?usp=send_form) as a way of acknowledging you have read our club rules,

We look forward to seeing you on one of our rides soon! ~Ride Safe and Often~

Nick, Peter & the SVCG Crew
