Bat City Cycling Saturday Group Ride

Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.

cancelled due to covid; likely until shop rides start up again
Red Horn Coffee & Brewing on the SE corner of Parmer & 1431

Route varies but is usually around 3 hours or 50-70 miles. Late fall into winter we slow it down a little and try to keep an endurance pace and possibly do some exploring. Be ready for anything. Bring money for store/taco stops.

Red Horn opens at 7:00 AM so head in and get a pre-ride espresso or coffee. Check our Facebook Page where we will try to post the Saturday route when possible. Hang out post ride with a delicious beer.

Please DO NOT park in front of Red Horn/Peddler, let's leave those spots for patrons. There is plenty of parking on both sides of the strip center.

Whatever type of riding you do, be it cruising the neighborhood and hike n bike trails, mashing the gears out to the end of Parmer lane and back, or crushing obstacles on the local singletrack, we're here for your needs. We love that so many people in the area are involved in cycling of all types.
