Road Group Rides

These are great ways to spin the legs out and exchange war stories after a hard weekend of racing. Be sure to head back to the afterward Rio for a world-famous recovery marg.

One of the hardest mid-day, mid-week group rides you're going to find in the state. It's not uncommon to find pros and Nationally ranked Masters on this ride.

If you're competitive in the 1s, 2s, 3s or a 4 looking to learn from faster riders, this is the ride for you. The pace is similar to TTH but the courses are longer. In 2020 a new start location was added along with more courses and a new format.

Similar to SOR this is a great alternative to Wednesday Worlds. Great courses and well organized.

The Oval

The legendary Oval...a great race pace group ride that has been instrumental in developing race fitness and teaching 1000s of cyclists how to suffer on the bike.

A great group ride that does a wide variety of courses. Not quite as spicey as the Oval but still good hard training with a great group of people.

Rio-Base Mile Ride

This ride is a great way to start base building for the upcoming season: a great bunch of people, long, slow, and chill (and chilly).

Life Behind Bars MTB Group Rides

Join us for a weekly Monday NO DROP ride for ALL abilities! I understand people can be intimidated/worried about holding others back, but fear no more. This ride is for you! The amazing bike community here brought me in with open arms when I had those fears, and I'm excited to pay it forward. Let's meet at Blue Sky lot @ 5:45 for 6pm wheels down, and smiles up. We will either ride North into Lory, or South into Blue Sky and regroup at various times. Hope to see you there! Remember, keep the rubber side down!
