Rides start at the Red Lot, located between Center and Marion Streets on Capitol Street across from McDonald’s, unless
otherwise indicated. The difficulty level of each ride is indicated by the following letters: A=Flat, B=Few Hills, C=Hilly,
D=Very Hilly. You must be an experienced cyclist to participate in C and D level rides or rides of 50 miles or more. Maps
or directions for all routes are available from the ride coordinator at the beginning of each ride. The club requires that all riders
start the ride at the scheduled time and place to comply with club insurance regulations and to receive mileage credit. Check
the club's Facebook page or follow the club on Twitter for updates and changes in the ride schedule. For additional information,
please contact the ride coordinator.
The High Wheeler symbol is used on certain rides to indicate that a club member will accompany slower cyclists on the
entire route. New riders are encouraged to participate on highwheelers until they have become acquainted with
the club.
