“No one left behind” Saturday morning rides are not pre-set routes. We want to stick together or regroup before any turns. Routes are determined by a consensus at the start. Please do not let insecurities about your ability or condition stop you from joining these rides. Our Club’s purpose is to assist with bringing you along and we graciously and patiently try to do that.
5:45p.m. from Long John Silvers on the southwest side of Columbia. This is a 25-mile night ride with lights. The emphasis is on the two big hills. This is for all level riders. It is a moderate ride between hills and everyone regroups at the top of the hills or at turns. Some ride cyclocross bikes for this. This ride is occasional; it is recommended that you confirm that others are riding.
No one was there! The Saturday morning ‘A’ ride will be consistently populated throughout the winter because these folks are dedicated and tolerate wet and cold. For all other rides it is best to obtain some phone numbers and emails of some of the usual riders to see if someone is coming.
Rain For Saturday morning ‘A’ group, wet roads are okay and the ride is on unless it is raining at the start or the radars are showing 100% chance of approaching lengthy, heavy rain within the hour.
Who can ride? Riders need to be members of the Columbia Cycling Club for waiver and insurance purposes. However, we are glad to take newcomers trying it out. You can sign up later. You must wear a helmet.
