Bicycle Ranch Tucson Roundup
WEEKLY GROUP RIDES
Join us on one of our Saturday morning group rides. They are very popular with the local cycling community and the regulars range in ability from racers to enthusiasts out for a fun ride.
If you have never ridden in a large group before, it can be intimidating. If you need some pointers or additional assistance, we will be glad to help. Our goal is to make your ride as enjoyable as possible.

SATURDAY SHOP RIDE INFO:
Bicycle Ranch Roundup is starting at 8:00 am Saturday morning as of December 2nd, 2023
After a long delay our group rides are back! At the moment we have only had the faster group out but welcome riders at all speeds to come join, get some training in and enjoy the ride. If you are interested in helping to lead a B or C paced ride please contact Steve. We would love to ensure there are people to lead these rides each week so no one feels left out. It is important to remember that the A and B tend to be Drop rides so if you can't hold the pace the group will not stop. We encourage you to check out the route before hand, ask about regroup points and know your way safely back to shop or home if you get separated. See you on Sat!
ABC Ride: All levels are welcome.
A / B Pace: 56 miles at 18-22+ mph
B- and less pace: 56 miles at 17-19 mph
C pace: Currently there is no set C group but riders are encouraged to come and do all or part of the ride.
WHAT YOU NEED
Rides require an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We also suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather although we do ride in the heat. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there - and have fun!
