Approximate Speed Guidelines


Our Monday and Wednesday night rides are divided into groups A-D by approximate speed.  These are group rides (not races), and the intention is for each group to ride together.


C & D groups are regroup rides

These groups have leaders that will help set the pace of the group. The group will stop at the top of hills, and at turns for the rest of the group to catch up. The tradition is that the last rider to reach the top of the hill decides when the group should resume.


A & B groups are drop rides

These groups are intended for fast riders that want to push themselves. The group will not regroup or slow down for riders that cannot hold the pace. Riders that are dropped are expected to be able to finish the ride by themselves.


Average Speeds

 Group  Avg Speed (mph)  Ride Type
 A  20.5+  Drop
 B+  19.5 - 20.5  Drop
 B  18 - 19.5  Drop
 C  16-18  Regroup
 D  14-16  Regroup
