       Regular Rides
Note: Sat morning ride goes year-round.
Most other rides go primarily during DST dates (early March - end October).

DST begins Sunday, March 11, 2018. Look for 2018 evening rides to return the week of March 12!

If you're looking for an evening ride outside of DST dates, it will generally depend on temperature that day,
and whether other people have expressed interest in riding.
Email the ride contact to see if a ride is happening on a given date outside of DST.

What do the Group / Paces mean?
If you are a newcomer to DunwoodyCycling but you have done other riding in the Atlanta area, and you have some idea how fast
you usually go, these designations should be a guide as to which rides are for you.
Group/Pace Typical Speed on flat roads Typical Average for ride Ride Style
A Group 24 + mph 18 - 20+ mph Aggressive/Attacking ride, often in single/double paceline.
B Group 18 - 22 mph 15.5 - 18 mph Friendly, competitive ride.
C Group 15 - 17 mph 14 - 15 mph  Social  pace.
D Group under 15 mph under 14 mph Friendly, suitable for beginners.

(The Average does not include, e.g., time stopped at a red light but it does include the slowing down and starting out again from the light.)

A few DunwoodyCycling rides may be especially hilly ("Ball Mill repeats") or especially flat (some of the "warmup" rides).
In which case, the difference between "average" and "on flats" may be somewhat more or less than above for that particular ride.
Still, these group designations will convey a general sense of what level of rider can do the ride.

a ride is designated "No drop", there are regroup points to wait on slower riders and/or a sweeper to make sure riders are not left behind.
If you are new to a ride, announce yourself as such before the ride and let the group know if you think you may need a sweeper.
Groups will gener
ally give special consideration to new riders. However, it is also expected that riders should be considerate of the group
as a whole. For example, someone who is obviously a C or D level rider should not expect a B group ride to wait, but he/she should find
a ride more suited to his/her slower pace.
