Ride Calendar

Join the Spacecoast Freewheelers on one of our B and C rated rides.  Our Saturday morning River Road ride is the most popular, starting with a social C pace for the first half, and a B pace for the rest.  Our longer rides are our B rated Sunday morning ride that changes start location and route every weekend per the calendar below.  Check out our ride calendar below and we hope to see you our riding with us.

Club Rides, Rules & Etiquette

First and foremost, we want to keep our rides safe; so please obey all traffic laws, and ride rules and paceline etiquette. If you’re unfamiliar with pacelines and new to our group please seek out the ride leader to get some pointers.

Upcoming Rides & Events

Tue
Tuesday AM Training @ Cocoa Riverfront Park at Village Cycle Shoppe
Aug 21 @ 7:30 am

B ride, with some portions at B+ and A- pace. Routes depend on participants & wind/weather conditions. Ride Leader(s) vary.
Meet in vicinity of Village Cycle Shoppe.

Distances range from 45 to 65 miles (75 to 100 km). Plan accordingly with food-hydration. We usually stop somewhere midpoint for rest/refuel.

These are NOT introductory group rides; you should be completely capable and confident riding in a group, with enough endurance to comfortably finish a 3 to 4 hour ride. You should also have no concern about fixing flats, should they happen, and carry the equipment to do so.

That said, these are “no-drop” rides: we don’t leave fellow Freewheelers behind. But you are expected to keep up and contribute to the training effort.

To avoid the summer heat, Tuesday AM Training beginning July 3 starts at 7:30am.

Club Meeting @ Sonny's BBQ - Meeting room
Aug 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Fellow members,
We gather at 6:00pm for socializing, then kick off official business at 6:30pm. The club will be ordering some appetizers, and you can also order drinks and food.

This club meeting is an important one: we elect club officers and leaders for the upcoming year September 2018 through August 2019. Come join your fellow club members for this important task.

Every member is needed and encouraged to become involved not only in riding, but helping to make our club dynamic, and a vital part of our cycling community.

Here’s quick description of each position:
