What we're about
I went to AZ and was able to borrow an ebike to try out. It helped me a lot and I was able to ride 60 miles when I was there. Needless to say I have already bought one for myself and plan on getting out on most weekends once the weather is a little more stable. I'm not sure how leading rides will go, as you can imagine I'm not having to work as hard with the motor assisting me. I can say that my times are not that much different than before the ebike.
I don't really care about going fast so the speed is easily manageable, I did do some rides with people on regular bikes and didn't find it to be that different than when I was in really good shape for riding.
I'll be posting a ride soon so I can test it out with some others. Stay tuned.
RBD will be dormant for a while. I have not been riding for the last few months and not sure when or if I will be riding again. If I'm not riding by the end of 2022 summer, I'll be deleting the group. You can still apply to be accepted to the group but until I start riding again I will not be approving anyone. Applying will put you in the cue to be added but wont start your free trial until you are added.
RBD is a private coed group of Mountain Bikers 30 and up that love to ride bikes in the dirt, explore, have a challenge, don't approach the sound barrier and leave the dating scene in the night clubs. RBDers are serious about biking but not hard core, this is a social group and just want to have a good time. RBD does mostly beginner and intermediate level rides around the front range and stays together as a group during the ride, not too close but just right. After all, isn't that the point of riding in a group? If you are low drama and love riding in the dirt, give RBD a try. This group will also be limited to 300 members (15 riders (8 in Jeffco open space parks) per ride max) There will be rides year around, even in the snow!
In spring, RBD will do a beginner level ride (level 1-3) on Monday evening each week! Until day light runs out. The rides on the weekends will alternate between Saturday and Sunday and may be any level (level 1-7). Other days may be added but for now this is the plan. The goal is to ride a lot, every other or third day.
Notice: There is a annual membership fee for covering costs of the group. The cost of membership will depend on the number of members in the group and there is a 90 day trial period at no cost. The cost will range from $1.00 to $5.00. The amount will be determined in December and posted on the home page. You are welcome to donate more then the membership dues and it will be used towards the group in some way. This group is not here to cater to each individual. This is a social riding group and you will need to adjust your riding to fit the group for that ride or ride on your own. The rides will have a difficulty level posted on it and a description of the level in the Message Board under the "Discussions" tab. If you are unsure after reading it, feel free to contact the leader of the ride to clarify. The rides are what they are. If you find the ride too slow, too fast, too easy or too hard, choose a different ride or ride with another group, it's that simple.
