CRUISERS
underline
Cruisers have two group rides: Regular and Long. Regular rides are 15 – 20 miles and Long rides are 35 – 45 miles (sometimes longer). Long rides are typically at a faster pace (average speeds 12-16 mph) with plenty of adventure and safe routes with rest stops halfway. Join us for lunch after the Saturday rides and coffee / tea after Wednesday rides.
 

All rides start at 8:30 a.m. unless posted otherwise. Departing from OCRR (Restaurant Row – San Marcos) 1020 W San Marcos Blvd., San Marcos, CA  92078 behind Ten Twenty Prime unless noted on the NCCC forum or Listed Rides.
