Club Combo 14-28 @ Cocoa Village Parking Lot
Mar 23 @ 8:30 am

Gathering place for this ride is southwest corner of Cocoa Village Parking Lot, at Stone and Florida Ave. (Moved from City Parking Lot).
This location works even when civic events take over the streets of Cocoa.)

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 gives our most skilled and strongest ‘A’ riders a better place 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.

The Route through West Cocoa takes riders off the River Road and back into West Cocoa horse ranchette neighborhoods. Rest/refuel stops at Junny Rios Martinez Park and Flying J Convenience Store.

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