Clipper rides are always no drop and average speeds are a little slower than the Roadies, although there is probably some overlap between slower Roadies and faster Clippers. There may be a variety of speeds within the group but there are frequent regroups, particularly after climbs, to keep the group together. We count heads and stop for flats.
Clipper rides are typically average speeds of 12-14 mph, with plenty of adventure, safe routes, and a rest stop halfway. Saturday rides are about 40 miles, sometimes longer.
Wednesday rides are 20-25 miles. Join us for coffee / tea after both the Wednesday and Saturday rides.
Make sure your bike is roadworthy; carry a spare tube. Helmet and drink bottles required. AND lots of enthusiasm.
Meet at OCRR (Restaurant Row – San Marcos), 1020 W San Marcos Blvd. San Marcos, unless otherwise noted.
Always check the Forum > Club Rides & Events for any last minute updates.
