Wednesday Learners and Leaders Group Ride
Starting to tone it down this week, we'll ride flat and a little faster. 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. Riders should be able to maintain an average ride pace of at least 14 mph. We may split into two groups, but the lead group still will not speed. 
START LOCATION: New Albany Heit Center
Ready to roll at 6:00 pm
Pace (average): 14-15 mph together, higher only if ALL riders are comfortable

Thursday Night Hills

While there may be a group, 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.
