RBO Tuesday Night Road Ride
Every Tuesday in May, 6pm
This ride is open to all road bikers including beginners, the only prerequisites being 1) you have a road bike 2) helmet and 3) lights.
The route differs every week. There are three ride groups for different skill/intensity levels: Medium-Slow: This group generally stays on flatter ground and rides about 15-28 miles. The pace is generally 14-16 mph on flat ground and slows up the hills. Medium-Fast: Faster and more hills. Average speed on flat ground 18-20 mph, 25-35 miles. Race-Pace: Extremely fast, averages 25-30 mph when on flat ground.
Bike handling skills a must, sometimes fun, but always a good workout.
Four preset routes as this group is a "drop-ride."
Meet at the shop around 6 and leave at 6:15pm sharp. Pumps, changing rooms and bathroom available. If it's raining, we will have a trainer session in the studio."
