A road cycling club established in 1992, with a focus on group rides and social connection. Most of our members are 50+ years of age. Some are former (or even current masters) racers while others are middle-aged converts to cycling.
The ride calendar provides for a variety of skill levels within the club, featuring moderately paced Saturday rides in varied terrain but also higher tempo weekday evening rides as daylight hours allow. Saturday rides start at 9:00AM (10:00AM in the winter – see ride calendar for exact date of change) and typically include a stop at a coffee shop.
Pace: Depending on the size of the group and range of abilities, the group may be split into two packs. The first group will go the pace comfortable to that group but the rear (or only) group will be no-drop and go at a pace comfortable for the slowest rider. The packs will regroup at the the coffee shop or finish. Depending on the group and road conditions, the group may do rotating pacelines or maintain a social two-abreast static formation. During the winter-season, October to March, fenders with mudflaps (on wet days) and rear lights are required. Small front lights are a good idea too. Annual social events include a summer barbecue and a Christmas party and awards dinner.

Guest Riders are welcome but are required to complete a waiver form and bring it to the ride you wish to participate in. Read more about membership and guest riders. Experienced members of the club will pass on tips and instruction to anyone unfamiliar with pacelines or other aspects of the sport.
