Cocoa, FL 32922

This Saturday morning ride serves a combination of purposes: social reconnect after the work week, a learning session, and warmup to Sunday C and B rides*. The several Ride Leaders are recognized as wearing yellow bandanas.

Social reconnect – South River Road, 14 miles, C pace. Group will stay together usually in a double pace-line until getting back to Cocoa. D riders (with no group experience) are welcome, and should let a Ride Leader know they are participating.

Learning session, warmup for Sunday rides – North River Road, 14 miles, B pace, max 20mph. Group will stay together in double or single pace-lines; Ride Leader(s) will guide riders in fine points of cycling technique and group skills. C riders are welcome if they feel confident in riding the distance, and comfortable with riding in a group.

* The ‘A’ Extension continues another 4 miles from the north end of River Road (@ Fire station). This extension is designed to give our most skilled and strongest ‘A’ riders a venue to ride at a challenging pace, typically 23+mph. While participation here is self-selected, if the Ride Leader is not confident in a rider’s skills, he/she may ask that rider to continue back to Cocoa with the B group.

This ride ends with a social gathering (off-bike) at Ossorio’s Cafe.

  1. For XFL Training Series (XTS) participants, March 18 edition of Saturday’s Combo Ride will include an extension from the Four Corners Fire Station going north around Windover Farms and/or TICO airport, then return to Cocoa. Approx. 50 miles total.
