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.

now back, at an ealier time and slightly different start location
the TNT ride starts with a 7.5mi spin meeting at Broad Oaks and Woodcrest (one block into the neighborhood from the old Bucks Bikes on Jollyville) towards the Twin Creeks Country club where we will do six 2.5mi laps; the end of each with the option to sprint.
after each lap the group will slow to regroup, or if you are further off the back, you can cut the lap short to merge back in.
laps will average 22-24mph and turn through 3 roundabouts *at speed*. overall ride average is 18.5-20mph.

riders are expected to ride as organized as possible, 2 abreast for most of each lap. once we approach the final stretch you can organize a faster lead out... or simply hold on until the sprint and give it your best.

- even though we sprint, you should not make any aggressive moves or attacks that could put any other riders in danger. this is not a race.
- if the any efforts are too fast, do not ride beyond your abilities trying to hang on to the point that you blow up and cause other riders to brake or swerve around you. maintain your speed and let others pass... or signal and slowly move out of line if it's safe to do so.
- stay organized! the laps are in a residential neighborhood with a country club that hosts events; there will be traffic. we want to do our best not to negatively affect the residential traffic flow.
- YIELD on the roundabouts as necessary. if you are towards the front, look ahead to the roundabouts for cars and call it out. if you are in the group, be aware that the group may need to slow/stop.

if you are new to this ride, please hang towards the back and get a feel for how things operate and make sure you are comfortable with the route, turns and pace.

if you participate in the sprints, also consider working on the front from time to time and/or leading out... you will get a workout!

There's a neighborhood loop in the ride that repeats 6 times. At first it's kinda hard to know where the sprint is. Everything looks the same when you are going 25mph in the dark. Eventually I got it. Ohh yeah bring lights. 1.5% sprint at the end with about 3% leading roller beforehand. Fun as hell.
