Your First Ride

NOTE: This page is under development and not yet complete

 

 

The Saturday FOG ride will proceed as a large more socially oriented ride at a slow pace (30 kph) to the first stop (Lockport on our typical route). At the first stop the ride will divide into 1, 2 or 3 groups depending on numbers. Each group will be guided by one or more ride captains who will be responsible for the dynamics of the group.

 

The three groups travel at different speeds, slightly different routes, and have different intentions.

The 35 Group will travel at a cruising speed of approximately 35 kph.

The 37/38 Group will travel at a cruising speed of approximately 37-38 kph.

The 40 Group will travel at a cruising speed of 40+ kph.

 

 

 

Leaving the group

On occasion you may wish to cut your ride short and leave the group for one reason or another. Whenever leaving the group a rider must inform the ride captain.

 

Moving between groups

A rider is free to select which group they feel they are best suited to ride with, but once they select that group they must ride with that group for the duration of the ride. A rider may NOT jump to another group when someone in their group has a mechanical for example just so they can get home earlier. The exceptions are:

  • if a rider is dropped on the road from their group, they may drop back to a slower following group
  • if a rider feels they are in the wrong group, they may switch groups at the pre-arranged stops by letting the ride captain of their current group AND the ride captain of the new group they intend to join know their intentions

 

Ride captains

Rides are under the sole direction of ride captain(s) who operate under guidelines established by the ride director and ride working group. Road rides are dynamically changing events and no two rides will be the same. Decisions about (but not limited to) pace, route, sprint points, when and where to stop, when to wait will be made by the ride captain or their designate.
