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.

Ride Leader’s Holiday Choice @ Ossorio Bakery & Cafe
May 29 @ 8:00 am

Holiday ride, route and distance to be determined by attending Ride Leader(s). 

While marked as a B ride, the pace will be somewhat relaxed and set by Ride Leaders.

Route & rest/refuel location to be decided as ride starts depending on wind and participants.

This is a “no drop” ride.

Tue
Tue/Thu Training @ Cocoa Riverfront Park
May 30 @ 8:00 am

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

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 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.

New participants are expected to have experience riding in groups including pace-line rotation, traffic call-outs (walker up, car back, etc) and communicating with hand signals (finish pull at front, move to left, stopping, etc).
As necessary to assure safe conditions for all, senior riders may take control and provide direction.
