Weekly Group Rides

DateLocationStatus
10/21/18Sunday Morning MTB Ride8:30AM- Rockland Preserve! Main lot on RT 79. Pump Track Session Before and  after the ride! Watch me crash! Gary
10/15/18Vernon Monday Night Rail-Trail Ride

NO Rail-Trail Ride tonight due to the rain. See you next week.

Make sure you have lights for the ride. It does get dark.

These rides are an all-abilities level ride, and begin at Pedal Power in Vernon, wheels down at 6pm. We'll roll out to the covered bridge in Andover (don't forget to snag a locally made donut or two at the 7-11 under the bridge!), where we'll hang out, have a snack, and head on back. If you get tired, or want to bail out at any point, simply turn around & head back to the shop. The group typically breaks up into different paces, and you can't get lost, so it's well suited to all abilities. Cyclocross & gravel bikes are fastest, but mountain bikes & hybrids are suitable as well

make sure you fill out waiver online and grab your season pass before the ride.

Rules of the ride reminder- Stay single file on all major roads. (Yes even if you are behind someone that is slower than you) Point out road hazards (Use hand signals not voice). When stopping at intersections stay as far to the side as safe. (two abreast at max) If you are stopped you are to be clipped out.(no riding in circles etc) Please be responsible for your own direction. Know the route!!! (print cue or upload to your GPS unit) If you get in front of the ride leader/sweep then you need to be self sufficient. Pick your ride group based on your worst day...When in doubt level down!  Let us know if we should add anything to this list! Thanks :)
