The Easy Riders cluster is for riders all over the city who identify as Beginner or Casual. Our rides are usually 20-30 miles long, social, and often involve stops for coffee, ice cream, etc. Frequently, we host Destination Rides to an event or attraction. We lead rides from Wyoming, College Hill, Kenwood, Lebanon, Newtown, Maineville and Newport. For rides rated Casual, everyone is welcome who can keep an average pace of 11-12 mph. For rides rated Beginner, everyone is welcome. Helmets and sign-in are required on all rides. Water recommended.
All rides are subject to change. Check Groupspace e-mails and the CCC website Ride Calendar for updates.
