All Group rides will ride at their posted speed. You as the rider are responsible for determining the correct group to which to ride with.
If you are not sure of your ability, please ride in a group that is a level lower so to be accustomed to the groups riding speed.
There might be times where the group encounters hard efforts on climbs and sprints on long sections or be split at intersection crossings, After these efforts and situations, we will try to regroup by either soft pedaling or pulling over so that anyone that fails to stay with their group will have a chance to rejoin.
We will also try to have a sweeper on each ride so to keep everyone together. (A sweeper is a member who knows the routes and is positioned in the rear of the group to make sure no one gets lost or left behind) Be advised that regrouping is done within reason as to not interrupt the flow of the ride. Please note. the group cannot constantly wait for a rider if they are always trying to catch up, we recommend the rider to go with a level below, the following week if this situation arises.
If the rider cannot continue the ride, please inform either the ride leader or sweeper of the situation.
The routes for each group is posted every week so that you may download them to your GARMIN/ cycling computer, Please review the routes so to not get lost and be able to return to the shop.
All club riders must sign a wavier and wear a Mineola Bicycle Club jersey on club rides.
