Ride Information

The ride schedule contains all scheduled rides.   Expect rides to leave promptly at the posted times.

You may wish to check the schedule often as it is subject to new additions on a daily basis. Also, if weather is not good, then a ride may be cancelled shortly before the ride, so check the schedule before you leave for the ride.

If you have any questions, please contact the ride leader.


All club rides require riders to

  • carry ID and name and number of emergency contact
  • wear a helmet
  • carry spare tubes
  • bring adequate drinking water.
If you have aerobars on your bike, you may not use them on our rides.
Riding with earbuds is not permitted.

See Ride Rules and Policies .

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

Pace is the AVERAGE speed for the ride sustained over ROLLING terrain . Actual speeds experienced during the ride will vary greatly from the average on A/B+ rides and little on B-/C rides. 




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

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:


Fairly Flat


Low Hills


Short Hills


Medium Hills


Big Hills

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

Example:    C:MH:35

12-14 mph average pace; Medium hills/moderately hilly; approximately 35 miles
