MS Training Ride - Month 3 - Day 2

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.

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.

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.

If you are planning on riding the 2018 MS150 or any of the other mass rides coming up, you should enjoy our Group Riding Skills class/training rides. These will help you become comfortable riding for two days with 13,000 of your closest friends…and the emphasis is on close.

We will meet at the Lake Pflugerville Pavillion and swimming area on Weiss Road. We will begin the ride with a 30 to 45 minute class covering a variety of aspects relative to safe riding techniques from the start through finish. We will also conduct a short clinic on shifting gears (when and why) as well as hydration, bike fit, fatigue and a few other aspects specific to long, multi-day, long distance events.
