Thanks to everyone who came out for Redbeard Bikes Sunday laps in Prospect Park this morning. We were so excited to start up again for the season! However, we've since decided to suspend our organized rides until the health crisis has passed.
We hope you'll still ride on your own, but for the safety of our community and our ambassadors, we won't be getting together as a group until it's safe to do so.
If you don't have a trainer + Zwift, now may be the time.
Please check out our webstore - www.redbeard-bikes.myshopify.com - or email us to order these or other items - email@example.com. Thank you for your support!
Ride with us to discover new roads, and make new friends!
We post our group rides weekly on Strava (Club: "Redbeard Bikes") and Facebook (Group: "Redbeard Rides"). Always check there for the latest updates.
MARCH - OCTOBER:
Redbeard Bikes' group rides officially resume the last weekend of March (weather-permitting)!
*Please note the change for 2019: Saturdays we'll go long (River Road/9W/points north). Sundays we'll do laps in Prospect Park.*
Most Saturdays, we ride up the West Side and over the George Washington Bridge into Jersey. Our turnaround point is usually the Ranger Station or the 9W Market. Round-trip from DUMBO, this is a 55-mile ride that includes the famous hilly "River Road" in the Palisades.
Most Sundays, we meet up for Prospect Park orbits.
A few times a year, we organize one-off destination rides (i.e. the Rockaways, Bear Mountain) and social rides where we consume more calories than we burn.
All our rides are no-drop. That said, the long Saturday rides are best enjoyed on road bikes, with clipless pedals. If you’re new to group riding, we ask that you join us for Park laps before you come out for a long ride.
Please make sure your bike is tuned, and your tires inflated, ahead of the ride.
Required: helmet, water (with Nuun/Skratch/similar), flat fix kit (2 spare tubes, tire levers, CO2 inflator or pump), cash.
Minors must also have their parents' permission; please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the waiver.
No aero bars, no earbuds, no bad attitudes!
NOVEMBER - FEBRUARY:
While "official rides" are on hiatus, our ride leaders and regulars may still organize rides, weather permitting. Please check Strava for announcements. (Search for "Redbeard Bikes" in "Clubs.")
