cycling    AdventuRides Fall 2015    cycling

Join us as we explore 3 different routes each week over scenic country roads and enough civilized off-road routes to keep things interesting. We are mere mortals who believe "fitness is fun". We'll get great exercise and discover new places together. Starting locations vary each week, but will always be within 1/2 hour drive of Groton, Massachusetts. You will receive ride information each week by email and our website. Please make sure to register your email address. The first ride is free- come check us out

Equipment needed: You should be able to handle our rides on almost any well-maintained bike. An ANSI approved bicycle helmet and sign our waiver form before participating.

Fall 2015 Cost:

Option 1: One ride per week (you choose and don't need to be consistent) $110
Option 2: Unlimited recreational, and fitness rides per week $155

Recreational Rides

Recreational rides: We will cycle approximately 12-18 miles at a leisurely pace adjusted to the desires and abilities of the group. You should have the ability to ride 1 1/2 to 2 hours, with regular breaks. The Recreational Rides combine on road and some civilized off-road. A sturdy road bike or hybrid bike is recommended. Each ride will be different. Therefore, we encourage you to do Recreational Rides and Fitness Rides as long as you are comfortable with the distances/paces of each class.
