Ladies Only Group Road Ride #4
When: Saturday, August 19, 2017 Ready to roll at 9:15AM
Where: Meet at Hutch’s Eastside, 820 NE 3rd St., Bend (map) ***If you are driving to Hutch’s, please park on surrounding side streets rather than their lot.
Groups: Faster Riders (A Group) and Newer Riders (B Group)
-New(er) Riders – Those Who Want To Learn The Basics or Ride Casually
This ride will be customized based on the riders who show up. There are several routes that will accommodate all beginner rider abilities. This is not a Hammerfest ride. These rides are inclusive and fun for those just starting out riding on the roads, learning to use clipless pedals, etc. Our pace will be adjusted to our group, anywhere from a 10 to 14 mph pace. We will adjust our total miles based on the group’s ability level.
-Faster Riders – Plan for ride routes between 30-45 miles. The pace generally hovers in the 14-18mph range — faster than a recreational cruise, but almost always a conversational pace. Pace slows for climbs and windy condition. Be prepared for hilly and flat riding.
Distance: Varies by group – 15 miles to 35 miles
Ride Time: We aim to be back to Hutch’s Bicycles between 12:30pm and 1:00pm for the faster riders and around 11:00am for the new rider group, depending on the distance of the route. There is no guarantee about return time as these is a no-drop rides, and the group will stop to fix-flats, take bathroom breaks and regroup at major turns (as needed).
What to bring:
Flat repair tools and lever
CO2 cartridge or air pump
