Meet at the Research shop for a 16.5-mile route that will include climbing and crank up the pace to 16-17mph. Meeting 15 minutes before roll out to sign a waiver. Re-grouping will be determined by the ride leader. Definitely not for beginners and is a drop ride. There will be no sweep. Helmets and lights are mandatory. Hydration (bottled or Camelback) is a must. Aero bars can be on your bike but cannot be used on group rides. Earbuds/headphones are not allowed on group rides. Please bring ID, cash (for anything you need at the store pre-ride), and a maintenance kit for flats, etc. All persons under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a minor liability waiver on their behalf and be accompanied by their parent or guardian (on a bicycle) for the duration of the ride.
