Here is a bit more info on the Thursday evening ride:

The Theory: 

Three years ago we started The Outdoor Coached Rides and had a lot of fun. Once again, we will strive to offer an outdoor environment similar to what you experience inside a Doctrine Studio; high-quality, organized, social, well thought-out, and time efficient. My vision is to provide my cyclists with a place to meet and enjoy their hobby with friends while progressing their skills and becoming better cyclists in general. All rides will be in as safe an environment as possible. I have an enviable coaching crew that will be able to deliver outdoor guidance to all abilities.

 

In Practice:

Once registered, Thursday night Doctrine cyclists will enjoy a consistent day and time to simply show up with their bike and ride. The goal will be to split up into ability groups and work on aspects of cycling that is relevant to that group. Skills, group riding etiquette, gearing, and pacing will be bundled in with getting in a challenging training session and some good social fun that is between 1.5 to 2 hours.  We will do our best so that no one is left behind.

 

The Location:

We'll start at Last Best Brewery, who has really stepped up in their desire to be involved with the local cycling scene. They are situated directly on the Cycle Track Network and routes from there will add a lot of diversity. They are on the corner of 5th St SW and 11th Ave SW. 

 

Coaches:

I have gathered very experienced leaders for our group rides, Sherri BuchignaniMichael Godfrey, and Marie Michalski will aid me in ensuring your time is well spent!

 

Last Best Brewery!

Last Best has embraced the cycling community and allows you to bring your bike into their facility after your ride so you don't need to leave it in your car! They are also the ride start for the Branch-Out Charity Monday ride.

 

Registration:

A membership for May 23rd - August 3rd period is available here. Attend the rides as often as possible.

Come out and join us!

 

Communication:

Well in advance to the week's ride, I will update this webpage if there are any updates to the start location or routes.

This group will do this loop and will hit some hills in Silver Springs on the pathway in Bowmont park. Depending on the group size, we may split this one up since we'll have 3 coaches available.
