teamCOPC Group Rides

We are focused on training riders for Pelotonia, but all are welcome on our training rides.

Please review the ride descriptions to join a ride suited to your abilities and training goals.

Weather/Cancellation News

Weather-related announcements will be posted by approximately 1 hour before ride time.

Rider Expectations

teamCOPC is committed to the safe group riding concept, and will stay together, or form several smaller groups, never dropping any riders.

There will usually be a leader for each ride, but every smaller group may not have one, and it may not be possible to "sweep" the route every week.

 

Riders should commit to keeping their group together and not dropping riders.

Groups are asked to ride the advertised speed ranges. 

There will possibly not be a rider leader in every group.

We expect all cyclists on our rides to watch out for each other. 

With that, all riders should choose their speed group realistically, to be considerate of those desiring a certain pace.

 

Finally, please park cars away from the buildings to be courteous to the Market Square patrons while we ride.

Helmets are always required, and we obey the rules of the road.

Note about the Off Season rides:

After Pelotonia, ride participation can drop off, but we're often still out there, even when it gets colder. We also join popular "event rides" in the area and away, and we invite others to join us.

 

Our typical schedule is below, but always check the Google Group announcements for confirmation, routes and updates.  

 

Finally, there may not be a dedicated ride leader each week. We split into groups based on speeds (usually groups from 15-18 mph average) of those attending, so bring a friend and have the route with you, in case there's not a group going your speed.
