Every Sunday from April through November, we offer rides of at least 2 distances: normally a 25-30 mile ride and a 40-60 mile ride. Lunch stops and post-ride gatherings provide time to socialize and meet new friends.
The routes are clearly marked with arrows painted on the roads so they are easy to follow. A map and/or cue sheet is also provided. Our leaders choose the best cycling roads possible-- scenic and relatively free of traffic.
CRW also offers a complete Saturday ride program. Some of these rides use cue sheets and maps, some are arrowed. These rides vary from 10 to 60 miles.
For the more adventurous, we offer single day rides of 100 miles or more. Our "Century Challenge" requires at least one 100 mile ride in each of the 12 months - winter included!
