In addition to group rides leaving from the shop on Sundays, MB Velo encourages members to post other rides using WhatsApp or our Facebook Group, MB Velo, for greater participation in the club. 

Ride descriptions

Rides listed below are held weekly April through October, and are suspended due to wet roads or temps below freezing. (Any riders that want to venture out in conditions listed above can post their ride on the Facebook Group page.)

Rides will ultimately be self-supported by MB Velo members and the Montclair Bikery will be recruiting and providing support for ride leaders. If you are interested in being a ride leader, please contact the shop for details.

The Saturday and Sunday group rides will have regular routes to ensure that everyone on the ride knows the route. A GPS of the route that is downloadable will be available on

https://www.montclairbikery.com/articles/club-rides-pg206.htm

Saturday and Sunday rides will follow one of the listed routes and the ride leader will determine which is best, based on participant's interest, weather, time of year, etc.

The weekend shop rides will be broken out into three levels of rides as participation demands:

A, B, C
A rides are 50+ miles with speeds in the mid to high 20s
B rides are 35-50 miles with speeds in the high teens and low 20s
C rides are approx. 35 miles with speeds in the low to mid-teens.

Welcome and I hope to see you on the rides.

Thanks,
