BEFORE REGISTERING TO BECOME A MEMBER, PLEASE ENSURE YOU MEET THE MINIMUM LEVEL OF PROFICIENCY

While we aim to accommodate all cyclists, we want you to be comfortable and safe riding in our groups. Some basic group riding skills are helpful, and you will develop more with us, but we ask all riders have a basic level of proficiency. All riders should be able to:

  • Feel comfortable riding at an average speed of 28 kilometres per hour, for a distance of 60km
  • Ride one handed and be able to signal with right/left hand while maintaining control of your bike
  • Ride in a straight line and not deviate while shoulder checking right or left
  • Maintain a steady and even riding pace, comfortable drafting behind other riders no more than one bike length behind
You must have a road bike, and we strongly recommend clipless (or click-in) pedals to ride efficiently with the group. If you have any questions about your current ability and whether our club may be right for you, please feel free to contact us with your questions.
