Colonial Park - Pre-Season Training Ride



Description:
 A weekly pre-season training opportunity for experienced cyclists to develop and sharpen group cycling skills through cooperative riding. Speed is not the ultimate goal, but each week we will focus on safety, smoothness, awareness, and predictability as we work to ride efficiently and ultimately faster together. The routes and starting locations will rotate throughout the month.

IMPORTANT: Not recommended for beginners. You must download the route for all rides, NO exceptions. All cyclists must maintain 16 mph average and have required fitness to keep pace with the group. Emphasis is always on GROUP and not SELF. Rain cancels, but chilly temps will not. Please check the local forecast and dress accordingly.
