From The Bike rack website: "
Intermediate: This 40-mile, moderately paced ride (16 to 18 mph avg) emphasizes group riding techniques. This is a pure group road ride and we try to maintain and sustain the group throughout the 40-mile course. Preview the route here.
Advanced: For those who want something a bit more aggressive, our advanced ride this 60+ mile ride is for you. Eligibility for this ride requires that you demonstrate above average bike handling skills and the ability to hold an 18 to 20 mph pace. Preview the route here.
The Intermediate and Advanced rides meet at the shop at 8:30 a.m. Sunday and depart by 8:45. We will cancel if the roads are not safe. You must have a road bike in good working condition and a helmet. We strongly encourage that you also have a flat kit and hydration. To join you must have experience with an organized group ride. If you do not, start with our Saturday Introductory Ride."
