Pace Groups

Riders typically ride in separate groups based on their fitness, skill level, preferred route and distance. Groups form at the start location and will vary upon number of attending members, weather conditions, etc.

Please make yourself familiar with criteria before riding with a particular group.

Typical Saturday group line-up:

Group Target Pace (mph) Saturday Distance (miles)
Neo cruisers 13—15 30—35
Cruisers 15—16 40—50
18s 18—20 45—70
20s 19—21 45—70
21+ Over 21 60+
Warps Over 25 60+

There are usually 3 groups on Sundays: Warps, 20s and 18s. And on weekdays there will be 1 or 2 groups depending on the show.

Groups leave in order with faster pace groups starting first. It is usual for one pace group to split for shorter/longer routes.

As a rule all groups above 20 pace are drop groups, i. e. riders will stop to help with flats or mechanical issues, but typically drop groups will not slow down for cyclists that are not able to keep up due to fitness.
