Sorry for the late post. Now that the weather looks dry for Sunday morning it's safe to commit to a ride. Come join us on our weekly club ride that we feature every Sunday. There are three route options starting and ending at the same place, giving us an opportunity to socialize with old friends and to make new ones! We start at David's Bagels in New City so you'll be able to stock up on any needed goodies at the start and share a coffee or meal with fellow riders afterwards. The three routes are loops within loops so riders of different paces can cross paths along the way, and so groups can support each other.
Although our hope is to offer all three routes at different pace options on a weekly basis, options will be determined by ride leader availability.
Route option: RBC Club Ride 35 - Link and GPX are accessed through the Cue Sheet button below
Pace: 17 mph average
Terrain: rolling/hilly (52 ft/mile elevation gain)
Regrouping: as needed
Rest stops: Quick bathroom/water stop at a park midway as needed.
Rain at the start cancels the ride. If it rains later we'll get wet.

Get up early, have some coffee, do some work, and get ready for Lunch!
Bring a well-maintained bicycle, spares/tool as needed, and a smile!
Lunch Bunch is a great "break" in your workday and will keep you motivated, get in some good weekday miles, and learn to ride with a consistent group. This route is relatively flat and can be fast - everyone should come back feeling strong.
Rain at the start cancels ride... Check back here by 11am for cancellations.
