Current Month's Scheduled Rides


Please follow these directions when on a ride:


Do not attend a ride if you are feeling ill or have any COVID-19 symptoms

  • Group rides will begin March 15, 2021 with the number of riders limited in accordance with State and Region COVID-19 guidelines

  • The club will start out by offering repeating fixed route rides Monday, Tuesday (2), Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (2). Fixed route rides will be geographically dispersed. The Women’s Friday ride will begin in April. The Saturday Steady Leisurely ride will begin in May and be led by Sue Smith and her husband. An additional notice will be sent to SBC members before the start of these two rides.
  • Rides will be posted on the SBC Website
  • Maps and cue sheets will be available on each ride
  • Ride groups will be limited to 10 people at this time. If more riders show up for a given ride, the ride will be divided into two or more groups. A volunteer will be asked to lead any additional group(s).
  • Riders will be required to wear a face mask over the mouth and nose any time riders are not in motion. A rider may choose to always wear a mask to provide maximum protection.
  • Riders will be asked to maintain a distance of 6 feet between riders (two bike lengths). Side-by-side riding is allowed when appropriate and safe to do so. If all riders choose to wear a mask, 6 feet distancing is not necessary while riding.
  • Be mindful of allowing for 6 feet of distancing when stopped or off the bikes
  • Mask and distancing expectations are required regardless of COVID-19 vaccine status
  • Members will be required to sign the insurance waiver sheet; sanitized pens will be provided
  • Riders should bring their own water/snacks since there will be no coffee shop or restaurant breaks during the ride (unless allowed per phase guidelines)
  • Above guidelines subject to change






Regional Ride Possibilities

No-Leader Rides Compiled from SBC Ride Listings


Terrain Classifications  (From Cascade Bicycle Club in Seattle):

Terrain indicates the most common or average terrain type of the ride and should be considered relative to the length and overall difficulty of the ride. For example, a long-distance ride with a lot of elevation gain will be overall less challenging than a short ride with equal elevation gain. Consider the pace and frequency of regroup as well to understand how advanced a ride may be.


  Mostly flat: Trails and/or mostly flat roads with a possible gentle uphill
  Rolling: Climbs are short and easy, not too numerous
  Some hills: A few short, steep hills, some moderate upgrades and/or longer gentle climbs
  Hilly: Consistent or continuous climbing
