  • This is a year-round ride. During Daylight Savings time, we vary the distance to maximize the available daylight. During standard time (winter), we ride in the dark with lights. The distance(s) vary depending on the daylight available & the weather. Through the winter, we generally ride 15-20 miles. Through the Daylight Savings months, we change the ride to a daylight ride. We increase the mileage as the daylight hours increase. We may choose for an optional stop for coffee at CJ's, Hastings or Starbucks during the ride. This is a popular & regular stop when it's dark & cold...not so regular when it's hot :-)
  • This will be a group social ride, the pace will be casual to intermediate. We will re-group at specific points. Riders should know the route, and the re-group points. 
  • This ride is appropriate for most riders with a road bike & minimal fitness. You should already be familiar with riding on the road and comfortable with minimal interaction with light traffic. Average speed is usually 15-16 mph. Nobody riding at or close to this target speed will get dropped, or ride alone off the back.

    This is an intermediate level ride. Expect about ~15-16 mph average or so. We will regroup as necessary. Our policy for this ride is to regroup frequently enough to ensure nobody riding at or close to this target speed will get dropped, ride alone off the back, or get lost. If you will be riding considerably faster or slower than the target pace, please bring a map and/or cue sheet, or be familiar with the route.
