Ride Ratings = Pace:Hilliness:Mileage

Pace or ride level is described by a letter:

A is the faster paced ride; D the slowest paced ride. Pace is the AVERAGE speed for the ride. Actual speeds experienced during the ride will vary greatly from the average on A/B+ rides and little on B-/C rides.

            

A

19+

B+ 16-18
B 14-16
B-
13-15 
C+ 12-14
C 10-12
D <10 


Rides posted for multiple ride levels will have different groups form during the ride who will be riding at these levels.

D / 8 -10 mph / Easy Pace, frequent stops, good for new riders
C / 10-12 mph / Steady Pace, fewer stops, for experienced riders
B / 14-16 mph / Steady faster pace, most century riders are this pace; at least one stop
A / 19+ mph / Fast pace, for strong experienced riders, maybe one stop

SS - Self Sustaining Training Ride (no sweeper, limited regrouping)

 Hilliness or terrain is described by an acronym:


FF

Fairly Flat

LH

Low Hills

SH

Short Hills

MH

Medium Hills

BH

Big Hills



Further description:

Hilliness Examples:
FF / 0-2 % - Essentially flat
LH & SH/ 2-6 % - A Few Low Hills
MH / 6-8 % - Moderately Hilly
MH to BH / 6-12 % - Very Hilly
BH / 12+ % - Extremely Hilly

Mileage is the approximate mileage of the entire ride
