Club Ride - All Speeds
Registration is not Required
We will meet at River Road Park (about 1/2 mile south of the intersection of River Road and Sanders Road) and pick-up for about one hour. All materials (collection bags, gloves, safety jackets, etc) will be supplied.  Following the cleanup, there will be refreshments and award of prizes for the two participants that find the (now) famed “Yellow Coke Bottles”.  After the refreshments, there will be a bicycle ride to Carolina Beach and, for those that are so inclined, to the Fort Fisher Ferry and return to River Road Park.

You are responsible for printing your own copy of the map(s). Do not expect the ride leader to provide any at the start of the ride. If you do not have facilities to accomplish this then email a request to the ride leader to possibly make one for you.  There are no store stops on this route but, hey, it is only a 29-mile ride.

There will be at least three pace groups. The “Need for Speed” group riding at a pace above 20 mph, the “Middle of the Road” group riding at a pace of 17-20 mph, and the “Fun in the Sun” group riding at a pace of 14-16 mph. We regroup at convenient points on the route…no one left behind. Weather varies with the season, so dress in layers or apply sunscreen accordingly, and of course, wear a helmet. Bring plenty of beverage & snacks because much of our riding is in rural areas.

 Everyone needs to plan on arriving 15 minutes before the ride is scheduled to ROLL OUT.

If there is a steady rain, the ride is canceled.

Please take a moment to review the CFC Ride Policies, if you are not already familiar with them.
