Several inquirers have requested a description of our typical ride.  Come along for the ride:

  • We typically choose flat (or no hills; low hills) rides
  • A leader or regular 'Spokes rider leads the pack.  A volunteer is requested to bring up the rear.  NOBODY gets left behind!
  • The typical full-ride is approximately 20 miles round trip and takes approximately 2 hours to complete.
  • The typical half-ride is approximately 10 miles and takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete.
  • Speeds vary but the leader will keep the speeds for full-rides between 11 mph and 14 mph (Road cycles typically do twice that speed) and around 8 mph to 10 mph for the half-rides.
  • We typically follow gravel or blacktop paths and try to keep riding on streets to a minimum.  Family rides will be contained to parks where no riding in the street is required.
  • About half of the rides begin at the Trinity Parking lot while the other half start in various areas of the region.
  • Riders are expected to follow cycling etiquette (hand signals, announce when passing, etc.) and HELMETS ARE REQUIRED!
  • We stop for five minute breaks about every 30 minutes.  Please don't forget your water! 
  • Leaders carry cell phones and simple first aid kits.  We encourage riders to bring their own.
