About our Ride
The Northeast Bicycle Club (NEBC) is offering weekly paceline rides to the women of the Greater Boston cycling community. Our rides will allow women of various levels to learn and work on improving paceline skills. This will be an opportunity to ride in small groups with female cyclists of similar abilities. Each week there will be a group focusing on learning paceline basics and going at a moderate pace of 12-15 mph. There will also be several faster groups of more experienced riders at 15-17, 17-19, and 19+ mph. All groups will practice riding in smooth, steady pacelines.
We will be starting at the Battle Green in Lexington Center promptly at 6:00pm (please arrive by 5:45pm) and will be using the same loop every week. There will be members of the NEBC women’s team on hand to give instructions, get signed waivers, lead the rides, and give suggestions and encouragement during the rides. This will be a great opportunity for non-racers to get experience learning from and riding with Category 1-4 female racers. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to ride in a paceline or had questions about bike racing, this is your chance to learn in a relaxed women-only environment.
Ride length is 20-21 miles for the 12-17 mph groups, and 26 miles for the 17+ groups.
What to bring on the ride
Road bike, helmet, water bottle, spare tube (which fits your bike), pump (or C02 cartridge & inflater), tire levers, and blinky lights in May and August. You do not need to know how to change a flat tire, but you should have the tools on hand so that others can assist you.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our google group for more information. There is no cost to participants. Women only please. You do not need to be an NEBC member to join us. This ride is not for mountain bikes or hybrids. Tri-athletes, please remove aero bars for group riding.
