DAY Intermediate 14-16 (42 or 55 miles)


Let's be ready to roll no later than 7:55 am : )

Two route options: These routes are the same up until mile 34 - the shorter 42-mile route diverges to head south on Swan Rd, while the longer 52-mile route will continue to head west on Main St looping south to Hinckley for an additional rest stop.

You can decide which route you want to take at mile 34, but the ride leader will be taking the shorter route.

DAY Intermediate 14-16


Are you looking for a solid yet conversational ride?  This Intermediate No Drop ride features an average pace of 14-16 MPH on any combination of trails, neighborhood streets and country roads that may include some elevation and basic pace lines from time to time, at the discretion of the ride leader.  Cyclists must be comfortable with a faster pace and some possible climbing.  For those new to basic pace lines, the ride leader will guide you through the process.

Mileage will increase throughout the season.  Depending upon the ride distance, there may be one or multiple rest stops generally at a gas station or convenience store.  This is a No Drop ride, but you will be expected to be able to maintain an overall ride average speed of at least 14 MPH.  

Safety is our top priority!  Be familiar with our safety and cycling rules; please consider taking the Bike Safety Quiz to enhance your safety knowledge.

Registration is required (click REGISTER NOW box), helmets and rear lights are required, front lights and high- visibility apparel are recommended, dress in layers.
