This ride is 19-20 miles of mainly shared use paths and bike lanes at a 12-14 MPH pace. Education on riding etiquette and safety are the focus, but drafting in a paceline will not be taught or practiced.
We roll on Mondays at 6:00 pm from Ft. Myers Cyclery, 3630 Cleveland Avenue. Come early to get acquainted and hear pre-ride instruction and safety briefings.
This is a no drop ride meaning the group will stop together for flat tires or other mechanical issues, but a minimal ability to ride at a 12-14mph pace for 1.5 hours is expected.
There is one rest stop on this ride at about 11 miles.
Helmet, working bike, and both front and rear lights are required. Please carry 2 water/sports drink bottles on your bike, a speedometer, and a spare tube.
While any type of bike can be used, bikes with drop bars and smooth tires are more efficient.
This ride and the Wednesday Minions Plus ride are great for first rides with the club.
