Finding a group of riders that you feel comfortable riding with is a key component of a successful outing with your local cyling club. Most organized clubs have different designations for each level of riding. Silver Wheels is no exception. Our chart is posted below and can be helpful in considering what type of ride you have the skills to take on. It is no fun to ride beyond your skill level just as it is no fun to be staying behind a group pace when you would rather go faster. However not all the information on a class of rides can be measured in distance and time. The purpose of this article is to discuss some of the other considerations that will help you decide which classification best fits your riding style.
