PBA has more than 30 club-sponsored rides weekly, riding 5 days each week. Our rides were developed to provide riding opportunities for all experience levels. So, whether you just bought your first bike or are a seasoned veteran, we have a ride to meet your needs.
Our Ride Leaders manage both average mph speed and distance to be within posted guidelines. There may be instances when speed may fluctuate depending on road and weather conditions. This is something to keep this in mind when choosing your ride.
Because all riders within a group are affected by a struggling rider, we ask that all new riders to PBA choose the ride below the one they feel is best suited to them until they can consistently complete that ride without feeling stressed at any point during the ride. When you're able to successfully complete the ride without difficulty, the next step awaits you as your next challenge.
Saturday morning rides follow this progression from slowest to fastest: Novice, Step-Up, B Squared, Tweeners, (Tweeners Long), DB Recreation, DB Lite, Forty Lite, DB2, DB1, Fast Forty, OAS Lite, OAS, OAS Long.
Most morning rides use the following start times unless otherwise mentioned on the specific ride page:
- 8:00AM January - March
- 7:30AM April - May
- 7:00AM June - August
- 7:30AM September
- 8:00AM October - December
Currently, COVID19 has impacted our regular ride availability and capacity. You can see what rides are available each week by going to our CALENDAR. Please bear with us as we lean on Ride Leader availability in order to accommodate riders. We're grateful to those Ride Leaders who give of their time to keep us rolling safely.
If you have traveled outside of the US within the past 14 days and/or have had contact with anyone testing positive with COVID19 and/or have experienced symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, and or flu like symptoms, please do not schedule to ride with the club until you have been cleared by a medical professional.
