Sunday Morning Road Rides
Come join your friends for a Sunday morning ride.
Sunday morning rides are a great start for new riders in the club. Non-members are always welcome to try us out for a few rides. A helmet is required.
WE HAVE 5 GROUP LEVELS TO CHOOSE FROM NOW!
Please see group descriptions at the bottom of this page.
New to the hobby? Don't know what group to ride with? Worried that you are not "fast enough" to ride with a club. Then the E group is right for you.
Our Sunday morning E group ride is great for new cyclist or those looking to get back into the hobby. The E group ride is usually about 20 miles round trip with a Starbucks rest stop half way through. Lately we've been having about 20 to 30 riders in this group. They are a lot of fun to ride with and we don't leave anybody behind. For those looking for faster, more competitive rides we also have Sunday morning A, B, C and D groups.
Our Sunday morning rides start at city hall downtown Riverside (9th and Main Street). Many people park in front of the old courthouse on Main Street (free parking on weekends). Click here for start location.
