All of our rides are categorized, so members know what to expect and can make appropriate decisions on which rides and groups to join. Remember average speed refers to the overall average speed of the ride and not just the downhill with a tailwind. Please choose your ride accordingly. If in doubt you can also speak to the ride leader prior to the start of the ride.
