Sound Cyclists continuously schedules rides throughout the year, with a more extensive schedule in spring, summer and autumn. Ride leaders schedule their rides through our Ride Scheduling System. This updates the public and member ride calendars real-time.
During the height of the cycling season, the club offers rides for almost every ability level, during the week and weekends. Generally, the faster a ride travels, the further it goes, and the more challenging the terrain. A typical weekend ride might include any of the following: a 50-mile hilly ride at an A or B pace, a 40-mile rolling, hilly ride at a C+ or C pace, a 20-mile flat to rolling ride at a D-pace or a 10- to 15-mile flat ride at an E-pace. Descriptions for all type rides can be found on the Pace & Terrain page. Some weekends may also include a mountain bike ride, which can vary in difficulty from narrow single-track to flat, wide rail trails.
From May to September, there are additionally many evening rides generally scheduled Monday through Friday evenings, usually taking place after work where people have an opportunity to relax and unwind as they ride at either a brisk pace or a casual pace. Some rides offer a mix of options where they choose to improve their conditioning, while others ride at a more relaxed pace.
