The ride will vary each month, depending on weather conditions and whatever strikes the ride leaders’ fancy.
Generally, the routes are in the 40-70 mile range. The pace is 17-20 mph on flat pavement, slower on gravel. While the leaders strive to keep the group together with periodic regroups, there is no obligation to wait.
Riders need to be self-sufficient and know the way home, if dropped. Occasional rides may include gravel or dirt roads. Check the monthly ride notices on the DBC ride calendar for information about unusual conditions on any specific ride.
