Level
Novice
Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Intermediate
Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Advanced
Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.

This ride offers a taste of urban cycling with a unique loop.  We swing by the Bush Library via the SMU campus, Swiss Avenue mansions, and sweep through Deep Ellum on our way into the heart of downtown Dallas.

If you are looking for a ride to video, this is the one you have been waiting for.

Road bikes, hybrids, and mountain bikes all work on this ride as the pace is generally a recovery from Tuesday and a warm-up for Saturday.
 
Please park in front of the Asian Mint Restaurant close to Forest Lane so we do not interfere with business.  We return at approximately 9:15pm and often grab a bite to eat afterwards.   



LIGHTS REQUIRED!!
