Tu/Th Group Rides

Group rides take place starting in late April and go until early September (usually around Tax Day to Labor Day). We ride every Tuesday and Thursday (weather permitting) and post weekend rides to the listserve.

Definition of Riding Groups:

Racing Group – You know who you are!

  • Usually two speeds for this group. Fast and let’s break the sound barrier fast! (16 mph+)

Nibbler A Group

  • Seasoned Nibblers or seasoned riders who like to push themselves
  • Travels 13-15 mph average depending on the route
  • Takes care of each other – not necessarily a no-drop ride but leaders always emerge from the group at each ride

Nibbler B Group

  • Beginners learning the rules of the road and getting comfortable
  • Road bikes, hybrids and even a few mountain bikes in this group
  • Many new Columbia Multisport Club members have come out of this group to do amazing things
  • Speed varies greatly 10 -13 mph average
  • NO DROP RIDES – we make every effort for this rides to be no drop when a leader and a sweeper are available. In general, this group is amazing at taking care of it’s own and making sure no one is left behind.

The Nibblers for 2017 will have 8 weeks of lead NO DROP rides from April 17 – June 6 on Tuesday and Thursday. For a complete schedule with routes of the 8 weeks of training rides visit this link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zBymSZG2Ae0YUA9SYavI7vczrHbDNss0_-wPjTEVWfc/edit?usp=sharing
