Seniors on Bikes hosts social rides for seniors of all levels. Check Seniors on Bikes for a complete list of rides.
Tigers - usually ride about 40 miles at an average speed of 18-20 miles an hour. Tigers usually have excellent riding skills and a fairly high level of fitness. The Tigers also expect that you can repair your own bike and that you can provide your own repairs and your own way home if you have mechanical difficulty.
Pacers - usually ride from about 30 miles up to about 50 miles at an average speed of 14-16 miles an hour. This means riders should be able to maintain an average speed of at least 14 mph. Pacers usually have moderate riding skills and a moderate level of fitness. This group is also considers itself a "no-drop" group, meaning that you will not be left behind by the group.
Cruizers - Our newest group, usually ride 20-30 miles at an average speed of 12 miles per hour. This is for those who like to just be outside and yet want to ride a little longer and improve their fitness and bike handling skills.
