Tuesday Evening Time Trials: Starting in 2015, OCC Tuesday Night Time Trials will alternate between a West course and East course. Check the ride calendar for location and times.
Tuesday Evening Slow ‘n Easy Rides: Tuesday evenings from mid-April into August, these rides are for people who are new to cycling or who don’t cycle very much. These are approximately 10 miles, have their own ride leader, and that ride leader follows the last leisure rider. Other rides during the week are longer and faster, and most rides have a wide range of riders.
Wednesday Evening Rides: These rides are particularly popular. Some ride them very quickly, but others take a more leisurely pace. Various distances are available and dinner often follows.
Wednesday Evening WNW Rides: are for the competitive female and male rider as well as those women and men who want to learn more about competitive cycling and develop those skills.
Thursday Evening Slow ‘n Easy Rides (East Side): Just like the Tuesday Slow ‘n Easy’s, every other Thursday evening from mid-April into Early September, these rides are for people who are new to cycling or who don’t cycle very much. They are approximately 10 miles, have their own ride leader, and that ride leader follows the last leisure rider.
Friday Morning: These rides are held on Friday and they tend to be of moderate speed and distance.
Saturday Rides: These rides are typically shorter and flatter than our Sunday rides, and they are less challenging in the Spring and Fall. Various distances are available.
Sunday Rides: These rides are our longest and hilliest (but, a choice of shorter options are usually available). They are shorter and flatter in the Spring and Fall.
Ride Cancellation Policy: In general, rides are not cancelled. For almost any weather condition, there is likely to be one or more willing riders. Thus, ride leaders should be sure to attend even if conditions are very poor and they don’t plan to ride.
Terrain: Abbreviations are used in the ride descriptions to describe how flat or hilly a ride is. Note that these ratings are approximate, and are an average for a ride –some rides have long flat segments along with some very hilly segments.
