Fitness: Team rides are a great opportunity for training miles and a certain level of fitness is expected to provide a worthwhile experience for the entire group. Average speeds on a typical 50 mile ride are around 19-22 mph, which would include climbs of 7-9% and rolling to flat terrain.
Rides begin on time so please arrive with plenty of time to get your gear ready. If it’s raining or wet roads, please have fenders and full mudflap. Come prepared! Tube, toolkit, and pump is suggested. Ensure your bike is ready to roll too! 2 Bottles and plenty of food for the journey is highly recommended, however on longer or hot rides we will stop for water/food.
