Description: B2 is a developmental ride that emphasizes group-riding skills while helping each rider work on their endurance on our 38-40 mi weekly journey. We work to help each rider transition from the beginner level rides (novice – Step-Up) to more difficult rides like Tweeners and Distance Builders, or DB rides. If you have not been on a bicycle in a while or are not confident you can do the mileage at this pace, we recommend riding with Step Up until you are able to comfortably complete that ride.
We follow all PBA and Texas Transportation Code rules and laws; stop at all stop signs, travel single file on all two lane roads, signal when turning, calling out road conditions, etc. As the largest road cycling club in the North Texas area, we are stewards of the road and it is our responsibility to be good cyclists.
This is a no drop ride, which means ‘no rider left behind’. We will help if tires go flat, or minor mechanical failures occur, such that you will know how to do it for yourself if/when these situations occur. Please come prepared with extra tubes and a pump or C02 rig to inflate and plenty of water to keep you hydrated.
Before each ride there is a mandatory sign in sheet and pre-ride instructions that last approximately 10 minutes, so please arrive with enough time to get your self squared away and participate in the pre-ride instructions.
