Roadies

Roadies

The Roadies have two groups, Regular and Long. Regular rides are 35-45 miles. Long rides are 50-60+ miles long. There are strong riders in each group but Long riders ride for a longer time.

Average speeds for the whole ride for Regular rides are 14-18 mph and 16-18 mph for the Long rides. We are not a “racing” oriented club. If someone really is too slow we make sure they know where they are and how to get back to the start. Routes are planned using RideWithGPS and the “route map” link for each ride goes to the route where you can view, download to a GPS navigation device, or print a cue sheet.

Please introduce yourself when you come out on a ride. Visitors will be required to sign the NCCC Liability Waiver. Riders are expected to follow the NCCC Rules of Etiquette on all club rides. Also of interest is this article on Info for Group Riding. Send questions regarding Roadies rides to Ursula at roadies@northcountycycleclub.com. Thanks to our ride coordinators Ken for Regular rides, Sean for Long rides, and Karl for Sunday rides.

FYI: e-bike policy is described here. Contact your ride leader before bringing a bike with electric assist to a club ride.

The NCCC Liability Waiver can be found here.


Saturday Long Rides

Rides start @OCRR at 8:00 am, unless otherwise noted.
Ride leader: Sean Brennan

Monthly plan:

  • The first Saturday of each month the ride focuses on hills with total climbing typically between 5,000 and 8,000 feet. This may include pitches of over 15%.
  • The second Saturday of the month is dedicated to a longer than typical ride in the range of 70-100 miles.
  • The third Saturday of the month is our adventure ride which includes new or rarely ridden roads, some dirt is possible and perhaps a gate or two.
  • The fourth Saturday is a flatter and shorter ride with distances between 50 and 70 miles with limited climbing.
  • Months that have a fifth Saturday will be a joint ride with the Regular riders following their route, with some bonus miles for those that are interested in a longer ride.
