Clippers

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.

The Clippers ride on both Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Clipper rides are safe routes with plenty of adventure and a rest stop halfway. 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.

All new and guest riders must sign the NCCC Liability Waiver and are expected to follow the NCCC Rules of Etiquette. Also of interest is this CyclingSavvy course on club riding. Helmets are required on all rides. E-bikes are welcome but please read our e-bike policy. Mountain bicycles are not recommended for these road surface rides.

Contact information for ride leaders can be found on the ride leader page.

Please take note of route mileage and know your limits… These are No Drop Rides, but if you are unable to complete the ride, you will have to plan for someone to pick you up at your location.

 

Don’t forget your WATER BOTTLES and SNACK
