Saturday Road Ride

Get out of those cozy slippers and kickstart your goals with the 6202 Saturday club ride. The ride is aimed at road riders with a variety of skill levels looking for a challenging, no-drop ride. The mileage varies based on the route chosen for that day.

Saturday’s agenda will be scheduled for the Bear Dance standard ride, the Pinery standard ride, or the Russellville Loop standard ride. However, sometimes you want to go long, sometimes you need to wrap things up sooner. So we offer points during the standard route where cyclists can cut the ride short or push for extra miles. Voice your plans at the meeting point before the ride starts. Some riders want to make a pivot, but just want someone else to ride with.

Bear Dance

This route takes the group out and back through the southwest side of Castle Rock. As the staple ride of 6202, it offers secluded riding through wooded hills and fast rollers over a rural highway. There is a gas station midway to refuel, but they have a $5 minimum for credit card purchases. Bring cash if you just need something light.

If you try it, you’ll like it!

NOTE: All riders are required to sign a waiver for insurance purposes. All routes ride along open, public roads, so riders must be comfortable riding with traffic and in a large group. If you have not participated in a group ride before, that’s okay! Reach out to a ride leader before the ride starts and let them know. They will be happy to give you a quick walk through to help make your experience fun and safe. Be prepared to handle flats and any mechanicals. Members are always willing to lend a helpful hand if something arises during a ride. Be familiar with the rules of the road.
