How are guided club rides organized?
How are guided club rides organized?
Club rides are led by our most experienced riders, managed by our Ride Captain. Most rides are a full day from about 9:00-4:00, covering about 300 km, with comfort breaks and a lunch stop. The group - usually 30-40 bikes - is split into distinct packets of 6-8 similarly experienced riders. Each packet travels in its own safety envelope with a leader and a sweep.
