|Distance||15-20 Depending on rider ability.|
|Classification||B and C/D|
Leaving from the Shepherdstown Food Lion Parking lot at 5:45 sharp. We stop at all corners and nobody gets left behind. This ride will have two groups: B riding 18-20 miles and C/D riding 14-16 miles. The C/D group avoids the biggest hills and roads with a lot of traffic. The rides will be canceled if the roads are wet. First time riders early in the season may fall into the E classification, but generally become C or D riders throughout the year.

The Bakerton ride is 17-23 miles of rolling, and in some cases hilly terrain. An occasional C & D ride generally leaves 10-15 minutes before the A & B ride. Though they may leave at different times, groups arrive back at the start at nearly the same time. Riders stop and regroup at most, if not all, of the turns along the way. Even the shortest of options is still a challenging ride. This is not the most beginner friendly ride due to it's length & terrain. Start time will move to 6:00 as daylight increases. *The Bakerton Ride will leave from and return to Shepherdstown on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Meet at the bank parking lot behind the post office. Riders may opt* to stay for beverages and dinner in town after the ride.
Canal Ride - Wednesday This is a casual, slower-paced ride for folks. Our speed, distance and direction will be determined by the riders who attend. If the towpath is too muddy to ride we will cancel, so be sure to sign up for RainedOut.

This ride is for those who want to venture off the pavement. Where we go and how far will depend on interest from the group, so check the Facebook and/or club page for details the week of the ride. Please have your bike in good working order, bring usual gear: helmet, gloves, flat fixing supplies, drinks, snacks, and possibly knee and elbow pads. Let's have some fun in the woods!

This ride was designed to be a ride for beginners to come ride with the club 'veterans' and learn about riding on the roads while building the strength & endurance to eventually come out to other, more challenging, weekly rides. The route is mostly flat and the pace is slower. Riders stop to regroup at every turning point.
The Thursday Beginner/Entry Level Ride is a D/E level ride commencing with an initial 5 mile loop at 5:30 pm (pace 10 mph) follow-by a 10-20 mile ride at 6pm (pace 12 mph). The 6 pm pace can increase as the season progresses dependent on the rider pool that is present. The ride initially introduces beginner riders to the bike path and low-grade road riding, but can branch out into more road based riding as the season/rider pool advances. Come and spread your love of cycling, encouraging words, and expertise to newer riders. I hope to see you all in the saddle this season!
With regards - Ruth

40-50 miles. This is an A/B ride with averages of 16 to 18 mph. Most likely we will have one refueling area. Route elevation will vary from week to week. We will do our best to alternate starting points between Jefferson and Berkeley counties. The route will be posted Thursday mornings on Facebook and the member site. Start time TBA, but it will be early morning (8-ish), so people can enjoy their day. At least one Saturday during the ride season we will take a trip to Skyline Drive for some rest and relaxation in the mountains.
