Fast-Paced Wednesday Rides @ North end of Switch Bridge

Fast paced rides of around 70 km.  Prevailing speed of 25-30 kph on the flats.  Yes there will be hills — as many as we can find.  The rides will be lead but not swept.  Be prepared find your own way home should you be having a bad day and can’t hold the pace.  We will try to rotate leadership among the regular riders once things are established.  In most cases there will be a coffee stop.
Meet at the North end of Switch Bridge, west of Carey Road (near Uptown Mall) at 9:30.  Come give it a try.

Friday Show and Go Rides @ Whole Foods

Friday Show and Go Rides @ Whole Foods

This is a ride for anyone wishing to go a faster pace than the Sunday rides.  Often the rides will not have a  leader and there will not be a sweep.  Riders who gather at Whole Foods will determine who will lead and the route.  

However, at times, someone will pre-plan a ride.  In this case, an email will go out on Monday or Tuesday to announce the route.

The pace will average 22 – 28 kph (or faster) with an average distance between  50 – 70 km.

We meet in front of Whole Foods (top level of Uptown Mall) at 9:45 am and depart at 10 am.

BetterLate ThanNever Gang - 2 paces

Due some negative feedback, the BetterLate ThanNever rides will be split into 2 groups. Those wishing to ride an intermediate to fast-paced ride can join Brian Collier. Those wishing for a more leisurely ride can join Donna Kerkhoven/ Alex Laird. 

The pace will average 15 – 27 kph with an average distance between 40 – 55 km.

We meet in front of Whole Foods (top level of Uptown Mall) at 9:30 am and depart at 10 am.

Final decision for the ride will be determined at the meeting place if the weather is iffy. During the summer months, when the weather is good, there will not be an email Sunday mornings to confirm if the ride is a GO/NO GO.
