Last year's ride was a blast!
Ride Type Descriptions
Happy Face Rides: Just starting to get into cycling or perhaps you're nervous about riding in the city? These rides are low mileage and go at a leisurely, slow pace under 10 mph. They may or may not have point, drop, sweep but everyone rides together in a group. Great for beginners!
Moderate Rides: Do you like to cycle and still see the sights? These rides range from 12-15 mph with point, drop, sweep. Suitable for intermediate riders as well as advanced riders who want more of a tour.
Advanced Moderate Rides: Like to challenge yourself without getting so out of breath that you can't carry on a conversation with the cyclists near you? These rides are 15-17 mph with point, drop, sweep. Suitable for intermediate and advanced riders looking to see the scenery, but not dawdle.
Quick Spin Light Rides: Feel like you're ready to start really pushing faster? These rides range from 16-19 mph with minimal stops and limited point, drop, sweep. Suitable for intermediate and advanced riders who can keep a steady, fast pace for extended periods of time. If this is your first time trying one of these rides, check in with the leader for details and make sure you have a Metro Card, MetroNorth or LIRR pass and bike permit in case you need to drop out.
Quick Spin Rides: Not for the faint of heart! These rides are 17-20+ mph with minimal stops and no point, drop, sweep. Advanced cyclists only need apply.
