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:
Most Saturdays, we meet up for Prospect Park orbits.
Most Sundays 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.
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.
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.")
All our rides are no-drop. That said, the long Sunday 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 email@example.com for the waiver.
No aero bars, no earbuds, no bad attitudes!
