Group Rides

After some experimentation, group rides are back for the summer and fall of 2021. We've partnered with Narragansett Brewing to lead casual-but sporty pace group rides starting at their craft brewery in India Point Park. Road rides are typically in the 20-25mi range, and we roll out on Sundays at 2pm.

We will be adding gravel rides starting on October 3rd (this blog entry will be updated as we get closer to the date). We expect these rides to be on Sunday mornings at 10am, rolling out from a trailhead outside of Providence and finishing around noon. These will be no-drop / conversational pace rides on a mix of gravel fire roads and single track, with a difficulty level tailored to the dynamic of the group each week. We will also add a skills-clinic element for any riders new to unpaved riding so that everyone can build confidence and ride safely, together.

[Edit: For our inaugural gravel group ride, please meet us at the Browning Mill Pond parking lot on Arcadia Rd in Richmond, RI. Rather than finding a route around the closed bridge on Arcadia Rd, please park in the pavilion lot just before the bridge. Meet at 9:30am, and be ready to roll out at 10am. Helmets are mandatory on gravel rides. Updated 09/30/2021.]

And, if you're feeling ambitious, you should be able to join the gravel ride in the morning, and the road ride in the afternoon. Please visit our Instagram account for the most up-to-date information about rides, and please wear a helmet.

[Edit: With the end of daylight savings, our last regularly scheduled road ride of the season will be Sunday, November 7th, leaving from Gansett Brewery at 12pm. Please join us for weekly gravel rides, weather permitting, through the fall and winter. Updated 11/05/2021.]
