Many GFNY races around the world offer group rides as a way to prepare for the race. Some group rides are open to any rider, whether registered for a GFNY race or not, and some group rides are only open to riders who are registered for a specific race.
GFNY group rides are social rides, not races. The main goal is to get out and on the bike together.
Bring all the food, drink, spare tubes, some cash/credit cards, GPS device that you may need. Wear a helmet, obey all traffic laws and follow the instructions of the ride leaders. YOU ARE RIDING AT YOUR OWN RISK AT ALL TIMES.
If there are pace groups, these are usually split as follows:
Group A rides about 28-30 km/h on average.
Group B rides about 22-26 km/h on average.
Group C rides about 16-20 km/h on average.
The GFNY group rides are free for and open to all registered participants. Please be aware that many of them are non-supported rides. Bring all the food/drink/spare tubes/some cash/credit cards etc. that you may need. Wear a helmet, obey all traffic laws and follow the instructions of the ride leaders. Ride single file.
