6/16 Shop Ride

Can’t wait to see everyone this weekend!

Two routes again available this week. The longer loop heads 32.3 miles up to Exeter and back, breaking up into 2-3 groups based upon pace. The front group is a “drop” group,averaging 25+mph cruising speeds, the other 1-2 groups typically cruise between 17 -22mph with periodic regroups to keep riders together.

The shorter loop rolls 23.6 miles out and back toward Wickford together as one group. Cruising speeds on flat roads will be about 15mph. Couple of little hills on the shorter route this week.

Here are the routes:

6/9 Shop Ride

Looks like a beautiful weekend ahead. Kick it off the right way with a ride! Two routes available again this week: 32 miles up into Exeter and back or 25 miles round trip to Shannock.

The long loop ride will break up into our usual 2-3 groups based upon pace.  Fastest group will be a drop group, the other groups tend to try to regroup if any gaps open up. The shorter loop will ride together at about 15-16 mph cruising speed on flat roads. This group will be identified before we leave the shop to avoid confusion. A fun time for everyone!

Saturday rides roll each week at 8am. Helmets required; bring water, tubes, pump etc. We should have all riders back to the shop about 10am.

The routes:

32.4 miles: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22874494

24.5 miles: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22874596

Hope to see you there!



Feeling fast? Join us Thursday nights at the shop @ 615pm for the Stedman’s Hour of Power (sHOP) Ride.

This fast-paced road ride places an emphasis on training, bike handling, teamwork and riding in a paceline. But be warned: this is a ride for experienced riders only. Speeds on the flats are often 25-30mph and end-of-ride averages are regularly 20+mph.

Tonight’s route can be found here:

PRO TIP: Got a flashing/blinky tail light? Bring it!
