New This Year! To better describe the type of group rides will be doing this year, we are introducing 2 new definitions for the type of effort you can expect on Velocity rides, the Classic and the Sportif.
The Classic will be a no drop ride and we will continue with the tradition of friendly social rides. There will be designated sections for those riders who want to open up the legs with a sprint or a spirited section. No more soft pedaling into the sunset after a sprint or spirited section. There will be a designated regroup area after each section. Good coffee and conversation will fuel these rides.
The Sportif will be a high tempo ride with challenging efforts (sometimes at race pace) with sprint efforts at designated areas. All riders are expected to be familiar with the route as this is not necessarily a “no drop ride”. Ride Leaders will communicate this prior to the start.
