Weekday Club Rides

This is just out of curiosity but why do clubs have so many rides during weekdays? I see clubs that have rides around 8-9am almost anyday of the week. I'm at work between 7-7:30am and couldn't ride during the week unless it's a holiday or I take a day off. Of course, there's weekend rides, too; but I just wondering about this.

I'd guess it's because there was a goup of people who wanted to ride together at that time.

People who work evenings and nights, teachers who are off all summer, retirees, just to name a few.

You mean not everybody works 7-4?

I work 1130a-8p and love riding in the morning. I feel ALIVE at work.

my club runs rides tuesday and thursday nights at 6pm... and wednesday morning they have a brunch ride... usually 35-40 miles with brunch somewhere in between....

I think mid week club rides come out of enough people wanting to ride during those times


if you map it, they will ride
