No Drop Rides will stick together at the pace listed. Riders who want to ride at a faster pace are welcome to do so. You will be on a separate ride and need to have the route downloaded. Leaders will not chase down front-runners that go off course.

Drop Rides are training rides, there is no sweep. Experience with group and pace line riding is required. If you want to expand your training and build stamina but are unsure if you can hold the pace, ride in the back and have the route downloaded. You must have the route downloaded in case you decide to drop off the back. It is your responsibility to know the route and know how to get back to the start.

As always, please obey all traffic laws, we stop at all stop signs and red lights. No more than 2 abreast in the lane and single file when being overtaken by vehicles.

Helmets required, no earphones/ earbuds, no use of time trial bars while in a pace line.

Your bike should be in proper working order, and you should have supplies in case of a problem…tubes, a pump or CO2, etc.
