DFW Airport Fast 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.

The "Summer Fast Ride" rider can expect a friendly and social 60-plus-mile recreational ride -- much like the "Airport Ride" -- but a little longer and faster. One should feel comfortable riding close to others in a group, as we might work in a rotation at tempo. Average speed from Preston/Forest to the Shell station will be between 18-21 mph. Average speed from the Shell station around the airport to the control tower and around will be above 21 mph. Please feel free to join this ride at the start or at the Shell station... Rest assured, the "regular Airport Ride" is a few minutes back to sweep anyone who gets dropped. Please introduce yourself if you are new to this ride.
