Paced to Suit Those Present
Leader-led group rides for all riders. Terrain may be challenging at times, but often with easier alternatives.

SMALL PRINT- Riders are not restricted to riding only within their category (i.e., the pace at which they normally ride) but may ride in any of the rides. If you are going to ride with a different group than your normal pace (especially if the group is faster than you are able to ride), please make arrangements to ride with someone that is of similar ability. Riders are expected to inform the ride leader if they are not expecting to stay with the group, and also to make sure they will have someone to ride with.
