    Spin Into the Setting Sun Ride- Longmont, CO

    Facebook- Bicycle Longmont

    This year we have 2 Group Options for this weekly ROAD BIKE RIDE, both groups will roll out together from Left Hand Brewery on Boston Avenue - Roll out at 5.30PM Sharp.

    OPTION 1: This group will be at a medium pace (15 to 18mph average - slower on Greenway, faster on roads), and will cover 20+ miles, best suited for Road bikes, and people with experience riding on the road with traffic.

    OPTION 2: This group will be at a slower pace (12 to 15mph average), and will generally cover 20+/- miles too, time & pace permitting. This group will be suitable for Road and Hybrid bikes.

    Both Rides will be a "NO DROP", we will try to keep everyone together, but in the event some are faster/slower, we will stop and re-group at intervals
    I've never done group rides, but I'm interested. Previously I've commuted to work 4 miles 4x a day to total 16 miles for a day. I haven't ridden for a month now, though. Could I reasonably keep up with the 2nd option?

    If anyone would like to share their opinion on the ride or my theoretical ability to do it, please chime in.

    I've never done that ride, but I think you should go try it, if you can't keep up, you can just find your own way back, right? Tell the ride leader you are new to group riding and s/he will give you some tips. Sounds like a friendly low-key group ride.

    option 2 would be a cake walk for you, a few more miles is nothing. sounds like a nice lazy (fun) bike ride.
