The idea behind a Social Ride is to gather with a group of cyclists and enjoy - cycling -. Many times plans to do faster rides are made; but every time we relax, unwind, ride and have fun. We share frustrations, joys, philosophies, dreams...
Social Riders also use the ride as a tool to bring friends into the sport. Many times people we know have heard us talk about riding and one day we have a chance to introduce them to the sport. These rides are perfect for that.
If you are new to the sport, or interseted in joining us... maybe you've never done an "organized" ride before... this is the perfect opportunity! We average about 10 miles per hour. On Wednesdays we ride 17-19 miles, rarely more. Other Social Rides may be a little longer, but there will always be someone to look out for you.
There will always be someone to look out for you, but we have to ask that you don't suffer in silence. Let us know you're having trouble and a small group will break off and we'll make sure you make it back safely and comfortably. Every one of us has bitten off more than we could chew at one time or another. When it happens, it creates a vivid memory. We can all sympatise and we don't mind it if you need help.
If you get a flat, the whole group stops with you so ya don't have to "catch up." The pit crew kicks in... Comprised of the nearest riders to the person with the flat, (we ask that you have a spare tube that fits your bicycle tire) one or two of us will grab your bike and remove the wheel, while another gets tools out, while another gets a pump ready... before you know it we are all riding again.
It's pretty cool.
