RETURN TO SPORT INFORMATION: Team Coastal rides start July 1, 2020. Please read and understand Team Coastal Group Ride Guidelines and Expectations and complete Cycling BC's COVID-19 Declaration before signing up or renewing your membership, or joining rides if you're a member.
Every week, we offer a number of group rides of varying speeds and distances. We have designated ride leaders for all rides where possible, and a no-drop ride policy, meaning no one is left behind.
Navel: 40km–50km, pace adjusted for slower riders. Great for riders new to the sport or to group riding. Come as you are and we'll get you comfortable riding in a group (peloton).
Valencia: 70km–90km, pace is faster than beginner rides. You need to feel comfortable with group riding, and should have a base fitness level, a road bike and proper (clipless) footwear.
Blood: High speeds and 100km+ distances make these rides ideal if you’re looking for a challenge.
Both Navel and Valencia Rides are no-drop rides. There will be regrouping points and pace adjustments so you are not left on your own. We start together and finish together.
Blood is a drop ride. You must be able to keep up with the pace as there are no regrouping points. Talk to ride leader for more information if you’re not sure you should join the Blood level.
