WRL Moderate 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.

This ride is designed for casual pace riders, or new riders who might be relatively new to the group ride concept, or are just now starting to stretch their mileage past 5-10 miles. My wife and I will (normally) be on our tandem, which practically guarantees staying under 16 mph. The ride leaves from the "Big Thicket" house on the east side of White Rock Lake, and will circle the lake. Please arrive early enough to be ready to roll at the planned departure time!

Typical flat road pace ~12-14 mph, but this is group-dependent, and we regroup if needed. We will attempt to do two full laps of White Rock, if daylight allows, alternating directions. Lights not required, but helmets are, and blinkies are recommended. Please bring tools and tubes to be self-sufficient, in case of flats!

The group may split, dependent upon rider abilities, but nobody gets left out there by themselves...

Any questions, give me a call or email me...
