Handlebar Bicycle Club sponsors regularly scheduled rides throughout the year offering a range of paces and routes for every cyclist.  A one time ride waiver is required and on file to participate in our group and event rides. Access to club rides and various GPS sponsored routes are available for the latest rides, events and locations.

Each rider is required to complete and sign a waiver prior to riding in a sponsored group ride.

Handlebar Bicycle Club offers several pace classifications and multiple route options for each of our organized weekly rides. We encourage each rider to choose the group that best fits their knowledge, fitness and ability to maintain the required pace. Choosing the correct pace group will ensure a fun and safe experience.

Ride Group Definition:

The main group of riders in a ride also called a Peloton. Aim for 10 riders or less per group. Groups below are designed to allow enough overlap between groups as riders skills and abilities develop.

A Group: 23+ mph Group Pace.

For riders preparing for races. Pulls are 23-30 mph /computer average 23+ mph.

Objective: Training for upcoming races.


B+ Group: 21 -24mph Group Pace. For advanced riders. Pace lines, tight packs, no surging and rest stops. Pulls are 19-22 mph/computer average 20-21 mph.
