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 are new to our group or unfamiliar with our riding rules and etiquette, please identify yourself to the ride leader.  He/she will provide you with appropriate assistance.

Road Construction Projects in Brevard County Florida

Our club rides are intended to be safe, so we advise and encourage all riders to avoid state, county and local road construction and maintenance activity. In order to do that you need to know where such activity is.
Fortunately, Florida Dept of Transportation (FDOT) hosts a website describing all current and planned projects across our county.

Please review this regularly: FDOT Brevard County Road Construction Projects

Thu
Thurs AM Training @ Cocoa Village Parking Lot
Jan 20 @ 8:00 am

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

Meet in Cocoa Village Parking Lot, 98 Stone Street, just north of Cocoa City Hall, and west of Cocoa Village.

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

Participants must have current SCFW membership. If necessary, please renew or join the Club.

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.

Club Combo 14-28 @ Cocoa Village Parking Lot
Jan 22 @ 8:00 am

Gathering place for this ride is southwest corner of Cocoa Village Parking Lot, at Stone and Florida Ave.
Saturday morning ride serves as social reconnect after the work week, a learning session, and warmup to Sunday C and B rides. Ride Leader/Ride Marshals (RL/RM) will be identified before the ride.

Social reconnect – South River Road, 14 miles, C pace. Group will stay together usually in a double pace-line until getting back to Cocoa.

  • Non-members are welcome for your first ride with the Club. Please identify yourself to the Ride Leader who will have you sign a form for one-time Liability Release and Accident Insurance Coverage. Those wanting to ride again with us must join the club for continued coverage.
  • D riders (with no group experience) are welcome, and should let the 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; RL/RM 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 RL/RM is not confident in a rider’s skills, that rider may be asked to stay with the B group back to Cocoa.

In the event of River Road flooding from heavy rains, or a change of scenery, the West Cocoa Route may be called. This route takes riders into West Cocoa rural and ranchette neighborhoods. Rest/refuel stops at Junny Rios Martinez Park and Flying J Convenience Store.

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