CANCELLED: Beginner Wednesday

Michael A. Perry, M.D.

It’s not looking like very good weather for a beginner night. We won’t ride officially tonight. If you wish to ride, be wise and safe. 

Help us fight cancer!

Food Truck Tuesday
NOT an official teamCOPC Ride - There may be no ride leader
This week: Cupzilla Korean Barbecue
6100 Grand Strand, Westerville
6 pm rolling 16+ mph 20 miles
Order ahead for your 7:15 finish.

Wednesday Beginner Group Ride – We need leaders too!
They're not just for beginners, but anyone who wants a slow, casual ride. Seasoned cyclists are also welcome, with the mindset that we will not “push the pace” on Wednesdays. We start with a talk about road cycling safety, group riding protocols, communication and other important cycling topics. Then, we’ll take to the road. The rides are fairly short early in the season and get longer as the daylight extends. This group starts with easy and flat routes, and we’ll progress into some hill training by the end of June. Riders should be able to maintain an average ride pace of at least 12 mph.

This week:
Ready to roll at 6:00 pm
New Albany Heit Center - Rose Run Park Patio
Pace (average): 12-13 mph together, higher if ALL riders are comfortable
Distances: 10, 14 or 21 miles
Thursday Night Hills
NOT an official teamCOPC Ride - There may be no ride leader
While there may be a group this week, it's best to bring a friend to ride with. 
This ride starts at 6 pm from Jersey Baptist Church in the north parking lot, and covers some fun but challenging terrain. 
These are the usual routes, and the group chooses at the start time.

Sunday Multi-Group Ride
A few routes are offered with a common start. Groups separate based on planned pace and ride together on the route of the group’s choosing. Routes are posted weekly.

This week:
Rolling at 9:00 am (please be 15 minutes early)
New Albany Heit Center - Rose Run Park Patio
Pace Groups (average): 13-14 mph, 15-16 mph
