SCCCC Saturday Rides
All Rides are open to the general public - helmets required
|Bicycle club members lead group rides for the enjoyment and
pleasure of the bicycling community. These rides are social and educational events. Experienced riders will be
on hand to answer cycling related questions and instruct less experienced riders on the fundamentals of group riding,
vehicular cycling and bicycle maintenance.
Saturday bicycle rides (or carpools) usually start from the
Capitola Community Center (Jade St/45 Ave)
just off 41st Avenue in Capitola. Rides range in distance, pace and elevation, with C rides being shorter and increasing progressively to A rides.
The C ride is between 25-35 miles, at 10-14 mph, with 1,800' or less of elevation. The B ride is for the intermediate rider with distances of 35-50 miles, at 12-16 mph pace, with 3000' or less of elevation and A rides may cover 40-80 miles, at a 15-20 mph pace, and 3,000' or more of elevation.
Riders regroup during the route, so nobody is left behind. Rain cancels
rides. Before the ride starts, every participant must sign a League of American Bicyclist (LAB) approved waiver
stating that the Santa Cruz County Cycling Club is not responsible for any incident occurring during the ride.
