Saturday & Sunday 7:30/9:00AM
Leaving from the corner of St. Francis and Forest Hills. This is a fast paced ride of approximately 50 miles that can be cut short or extended. The route leaves the White Rock Lake area, continues east to Mesquite & Sunnyvale along the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. The route contains some rolling and steep hills plus fast flat sections. Average speed is 20+ mph.

In the summer, the ride leaves at 7:30 to avoid the heat and in the fall and winter the ride shifts to 9:00AM to take advantage of warmer later morning temperatures. This ride is generally for faster, more experienced riders, but novice riders do attend to advance and test their fitness levels.

Sunday 8:30AM

It will regroup 2-3 times along the route and is a good ride for intermediate riders or riders wanting a good ride without a massive workout.

Please note group size and speed may vary depending on who shows up. These rides are leaderless, so please bring a map and/or ride with someone who you know if this is your first time. The group is pretty cordial and can break up in to smaller groups, but come prepared.
