Sunday Hill Climb 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.

Since we went South last week and some of us completed the entire ride, I decided that we should go north this Sunday. The route is new but ventures through familiar territory. We will warm up on Panorama then head over to Centennial and Holland Park. From there we head over to Popes Bluff & Valley, then over to Rockrimmon, then cutting through War Eagle to Allegheny for the climb up Oak Valley Dr. We will eventually find our way to Woodmen, then up and around to Allegheny, then up the steeper south side of Flying W. We will finish by charging down 30th St to Water St to Westmoor Park.

Approximate total distance: 26.5 miles.

Approximate total elevation gain: 2691 ft.

Approximate duration: 2.5 - 3.0 hours.

The Sunday Hill Climb Ride is a no drop ride with an emphasis on improving climbing skills and stamina. All abilities are invited to join. The ride will re-group at the top of climbs. So, if you are the first up, you have the option to roll back down and repeat the climb as many times as you like until everyone is up. Distance usually ranges from 15 to 20 miles. The ride usually lasts 2-3 hours, giving riders the opportunity to join the Sunday Social Ride as well.

Please note the Sunday Hill Climb Ride is starting from: Westmoor Neighborhood Park, 3315 Water St. (Chambers Dr. and Water St.)

And note NEW START TIMES: Winter (Oct -May) starting time, 10 am. Summer (June-August) starting time, 9am.
