There are a number of group rides from the shops. Occasionally, rides may be cancelled due to other cycling events or weather conditions. We recommend you contact the shop before attending a ride for the first time to verify that the ride will be held that week. We hope to see you there!
We welcome you to join us on group rides from our shops, or organized by our staff from other locations. Each ride has a unique personality and group of regular riders. Some are very competitive, others pure fun. Group rides help keep you riding on a regular basis, improve your fitness and make riding more enjoyable. The friendships you form along the way are one of the best benefits of cycling!
All shop rides are intended for road bikes - it is extremely difficult to keep up with any other type of bike, even for the fittest rider. Helmets are required on all rides. Please feel free to call the shop with any questions.
