B-Group is medium/fast paced (Average 14 – 18 mph). 6 pm from Madison Park, 24th and Maine in Quincy. Group helps members build group cycling skills and hill climbing ability. This group is designed to transition Pedal Pushers riders to the next level, so you should have some experience and be comfortable riding 20+ miles at a time before joining. As much as possible, riders will not be dropped and we will regroup periodically if needed. Routes will average 20-30 miles.
Pedal Pushers, our beginner and social group, also meets Thursday evening. This ride now starts at 5:30pm (due to the days getting shorter) from Wavering Park at the 1200 block of North 36th Street. Rides will be a manageable pace for most riders, around 12 mph. Riders will not be dropped from this ride and we will regroup and rest periodically. Spring rides will start in the 15 mile range and get longer as the year goes on.
*NOTE: Club Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of every month. On those days, neither Leisure Wheels or Pedal Pushers will meet.
