North Valley Ride Club
This ride is paced for a solid workout; 19-22+ mph, double pace line, safety-conscious, law-abiding, riding the Fit 50 course (including Troxel and coming back into town via West Sac / Bidwell Ave).
In an attempt to keep the ride as safe as possible and to keep most folks engaged, the only sprint will be on West Sac. Following the sprint, a slow-rolling regroup will take place before turning onto Bidwell Ave.
If you get dropped, continue to show up for this ride and improve your tactics. The first one over the finish line isn't always the strongest rider. Ride smart.
If you're not sure about riding hard in a group, stay to the back and observe.
This is a friendly, fast ride but competitively social. If you're busy chatting, you're not working hard enough.
If you get a flat or have a mechanical, kindly maintain your speed, move to the right and announce the issue. The group will regroup at the next safe location – a corner, turnout, or driveway. Members of the group are encouraged to assist with the issue.
Come experience this ride and be part of a new offering for Saturday mornings. If the turnout is strong, we'll make this a weekly occurrence. If not, we'll sprinkle this ride throughout the fall and winter months.
If mother nature gives us rain, wind, snow or scorching heat... buck up! Nothing cancels this ride.
