i Cycle Wednesday 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.

Join us as we ride 23 miles from i Cycle Bike Shop at 6:30 Wednesday evenings at a pace of about 17-20 mph. Be prepared to go at least 16 mph average. You can short cut the ride on Heights or Houston Ave. if you're not feeling up to the full 23. This is a Road Bike ride. No hybrids or mountain bikes. Helmets and lights required. Lights should be bright! At least 100 lumen front light and rear light 15 lumen or better are required. iCycle has a wide selection of lights. Your bike should be in good working order and you should have a flat fixing kit with you. This is a group ride on the streets of Houston in traffic. The route is chosen for scenic beauty and to avoid traffic, major thoroughfares and bad streets, but you are still riding on city streets with cars. Exercise caution and obey traffic laws. Watch for and call out road hazards. Standard group riding etiquette applies to all iCycle rides: Strive to keep the group together, call out or point out hazards, no earbuds or loud sound systems, stay off aerobars, ride smoothly and predictably, avoid abrupt maneuvers.
