Mid Century Ride

Road, No Drop
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.

30-35 miles. 14-16 mph. No drop.
50+ year old riders only, please.

The Mid-Century is our popular, 50+ road ride. Maintaining the spirit of a ride, not a Saturday morning race, the Mid-Century rolls out and maintains a steady 2x2 pace. There may be a few occasions when the ride speeds up, but it will always regroup soon after. This is a no drop ride, but riders should always bring a cell phone, flat repair kit and the ability to change a tube.
