sHOP Ride, Thursday 6/9

Feeling fast? Join us Thursday night at 615pm for the Hour of Power. This 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 will be 25-30mph at times and the end-of-ride average will be greater than 20mph.

Tonight’s ride will feature a warm up pace as we head towards URI but things will quickly pick up once on North Road. It will be full speed ahead on Slocum, through the turf fields and Lafayette until we hit Hatchery- the route’s only real climb of the night. From there we’ll cruise downhill back to the shop via Stony Fort and Broad Rock.
