FORMER Group Ride Speed / Distance Categories
Starting May 1, 2022, based on feedback from Group Riders and the
2022 Cub Group Rides Leadership Meeting, in an effort to more clearly state the ride profile, we are discontinuing our prior letter categories and showing the Target AVERAGE MOVING SPEED (excluding warm up, cool down and stopped time) and ride distance.
For example a 30 ride formerly displayed in the Ride Title as “C” 15 mph Club Group Ride will now be displayed as 15mph/30mi Club Group Ride.
Ride leaders are responsible for setting the category as part of the posting of their ride, and adhering to that category during the ride.
Ride Speed Categories as of 11/13/2020 Updated 10/22/21
At Ride Leaders’ discretion, the group may be split to ride at different Speeds and/or Distances before ride start or at rest stop, but Ride Leader will ride with “posted” Category and will designate a Ride Leader for the alternate group (e.g. a “C” ride is posted but the Ride Leader can designate at ride start or at rest stop an alternative Ride Leader who would lead a “C+” or "D" speed category group)
“#” Group MAY ride as a Pace Line SOLELY at Ride Leader’s discretion, with sensitivity to riders’ skills, familiarity with other riders in group and road/weather conditions. Front rider intervals for "pulling", distance between wheels, etc. will be reviewed during pre-ride briefing.
