Wednesday Night Bicycles Etc. Ride
Length: 27 miles. Two climbs, 1.5 and 1.2 miles. Hilly profile. Average speed: 15 to 18 mph, including hills. Speed groups: A (Aggressive... 17-18+ mph) and B (Conversationally Quick...15-17 mph). B Group regroups after hills and at major intersections, and tends to stay together.

Ride length varies between 19 and 27 miles, depending on daylight availability and weather. Lights are recommended for the latter part of the ride in the event you have a mechanical, or are just very slow. Total ride time is usually about 1:50 or less.
