Event: Beginner's Ride
Start Time: 8:30
Start Location: Venice starting at Unity Church, 125 N Jackson Road (corner of E Venice Ave and Jackson). From River Road, turn west on E Venice and go one mile to Jackson. Turn right on Jackson. PLEASE PARK AT FAR END OF CHURCH LOT AWAY FROM BUILDING
Leader: Don Lacoste
Leader Phone: 207-338-0063
Leader Email: donlacoste@me.com
Event Description: This ride was introduced two years ago with great success. It is designed to introduce new riders to this great sport without the intimidation of the longer rides that are offered by CCBC. The maximum ride length is 15 miles but there are some options for new riders to shorten the ride with two resting stops and resume the ride with the group on the return leg. The pace will be 10-12 mph which is an easy speed to maintain for new riders or those recovering from injury. You will also receive instruction on cadence (revolutions per minute), group ride basics, safe ride basics and more. No one will be left behind. We will be riding past horse farms and along the Myakka River. This is a great opportunity for those who have existing club member partners who already have achieved longer distance rides and to be part of this club. For me, the ride leader, it is great to meet new entries to this sport and see them move on to the other club rides. You will be surprised how quickly you will advance in ride speed and distance. We REQUIRE new riders to come with a helmet, water and if not a member, a signed guest membership form which can be printed off the CCBC site or provided by group leader. The guest membership is good for two weeks and will hopefully encourage you to become a full time member. For more information, contact Don Lacoste at 207 338-0063 or email, donlacoste@me.com
