Group 1 is at this moment is full and waitlisted.
If there is a demand, I will lead a second group for Dan and Elaine's ride (see below), officially starting 15 minutes after Dan's, which gathers at 10 for a 10:15 start on Monday and for a 10:30 Start on Tuesday.
This will be a self-paced, self-guided group with no sweep, geared for the more independent cyclist. If you desire a cue sheet, please go to the route link below and print one for yourself. It is recommended you ride with others riding your pace but prepared to ride independently.
If you currently are signed up for Dan's group, and you're ok without a sweep, you should consider signing up for group 2 to make more room for others in Group 1
