We reintroduced group rides in the summer of 2021, and our team has committed to keep them going through spring 2022 and beyond. We know that different folks are are looking for different styles of ride, and so we're turning this space into a list of some of the different options available to folks in the greater Providence area.

*Wednesday morning no-drop group rides will be back in the spring
The first Sunday of the month, join us for a slightly faster, free-form road ride into the rural areas outside Providence. These rides are typically in the range of thirty miles, and we'll make adjustments to the route based on how the group feels. In most cases, we'll be finished within two hours. The group will roll out from the shop at 10am (weather permitting). As always, helmets are mandatory and positive attitudes are appreciated.
*No pre-set routes for this ride

OTHER LOCAL GROUP RIDES AND MORE
This is a fast-paced road weekly road ride with a group of experienced racers that can average 25mph or more. The group meets in India Point Park on Tuesdays at 530pm, and road rides give way to cyclocross rides in the fall. This ride is not associated with Dash Bicycle, but it's a fun if you like things spicy.
Providence Bike Jam
This is a once-monthly Friday night bike party born out of the Critical Mass cycling advocacy movement. The vibe is fun and inclusive, and the typical ride pace is closer to 10mph, with occasional stops that include dance parties. Basic ride details are always posted on instagram @pvdbikejam at least a day ahead of time, and rides are frequently themed.
