KCC Road Rides
Road rides will cover approximately 40‐60 kms at an average speed in excess of 23 km/hour over both flat and rolling terrain, usually in an alternating‐leader formation, with a mid‐ride break and a total elapsed time of 2.5‐3.0 hours. Riders will need to be/become comfortable and predictable riding in fairly close proximity and in changing position within the group. A “road” bike (with drop bars and smooth/lightly treaded tires 28 mm or less in width) is highly recommended. (A mountain or other upright bike with off‐road tires will not allow you to maintain the pace or control required for this kind of riding.)
Rides may separate into faster and slower groups as required, but groups will wait at stopsigns/intersections for trailing riders. Groups of riders may on occasion employ a (constantly rotating) pace line (at the group’s discretion and if road and traffic conditions allow).
