Over the Hump Day Ride
When: 6 pm for 1 to 2 hours (rolling at 6:03pm)
Where: Criterium Bicycles
How: No-Drop ride with occasional effort with full regroup
ROUTE: Decided at the time of the event to make the best selection. If using a GPS device, best to pre-load all routes ahead of time.
Details: Join us for a group ride from Criterium Bicycles. The route will change each week but you can plan on 1 to 2 hours of riding. It's a no-drop ride but be prepared for some climbing. From the shop, most of the routes (but not all) involve some elevation gain. We will have a lead and try to have a sweep for each event. Please arrive 15 minutes early as the ride will leave at the scheduled time.
If you can, please consider biking to the event as there is NO parking for the group ride allowed at Criterium. The best parking location is the back of the Furniture Row Parking lot (click for map location).
Criterium has restrooms and drinking fountains that you can use before the ride. But when gathering for the event we will meet on the West side of the building in the Crit-Cafe Patio to avoid blocking up the entrance (click for map location).
This ride is open to members and prospective members (first ride only with waiver)). SOCO Velo has a 30-day trial membership that we encourage prospective members to join if you would like check out our club and ride with us!
