Zube Park Ride

Event Details

Start time is 7:30 AM.  THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE RIDE – We will cancel only if there are thunderstorms or worse happening at ride start time. We will communicate that on the Facebook pages if it becomes necessary.

The Zube Park rides are a great way to check out the club before you join. That’s because you don’t need to be a club member to come along for the ride.

We will have four official group rides leaving from Zube.  Each group will have designated leaders from club membership, and our rides will roll out separately from the other groups that leave from Zube park–NWCC rides meet in the back lot (look for the NWCC flag). Riders are expected to abide by all traffic laws, wear a helmet, and refrain from using headphones/earbuds.

  • The No/Low Drop Group with an approximate 13mph/21kph rolling average (which may vary based on wind, group, etc) that will ride a distance of roughly 25 miles/40 kilometers.
    • This group is new-rider friendly, and teaches and reinforces group-riding skills, safety, and etiquette.
    • The route may vary, but the common route for this ride can be seen here: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/66473025
    • This route will be led by Sam Wu, Dana Foy, and Alan Stuckert
  • The 14-16 mph Group expects riders to have basic, requisite group riding skills (know how to ride safely in a pace line, communicate, rotate off the front, etc.) and most commonly rides a route that is slightly over 40 miles/64 km.
    • The route: https://www.strava.com/routes/2733723585511596190
    • The ride leaders will be announced on the day.
    • This is NOT a no drop ride; riders are expected to be able to maintain the group pace or they will be dropped, and riders off the front will not be chased (the group does stop for mechanicals flats).
  • The 16-18mph Group has the same expectations as the 14-16mph Group but is designed as a bridge up to the faster group.
    • The route is as above.
    • Ride leaders will be announced on the day.
    • This is NOT a no drop ride; riders are expected to be able to maintain the group pace or they will be dropped, and riders off the front will not be chased (the group does stop for mechanicals flats).
  • The 18-20 mph Group has the same expectations as the 16-18 mph Group, but is slightly faster.  They also commonly ride the same standard route.
    • This ride leaders will be announced on the day.
    • This is NOT a no drop ride; riders are expected to be able to maintain the group pace or they will be dropped, and riders off the front will not be chased (the group does stop for mechanicals flats).
