Weekly Rides

CCCP Weekly Group
Monday Night Thursday Night Saturday Morning

Welcome to the CCCP Rides page! We are a fun, friendly, and inclusive group, riding on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Each ride offers a variety of speed and challenge levels, with rally points along the way to regroup and socialize. All weekly rides leave from the parking lot behind 15 Baxter Boulevard, at the base of the radio antenna near Hannaford’s Supermarket on Forest Ave. Please park at the rear of parking lot near the antenna.

Our official ride season runs for 7 months from April 1st through October 31st. If the weather is favorable, we may start rides as early as March and continue through Thanksgiving. Please note that designated routes and distances may occasionally change due to road construction, weather, or remaining light. If you decide to drop out early, please tell a ride leader or another rider so that the group doesn’t wait for you at the next stop.

Ride Groups We offer multiple ride levels to satisfy a wide range of riders.

Elite: Our most aggressive group (20-22 mph) with surging on hills and sprinting; no specific regroups
A:

Our traditionally fast group (19-21 mph) with fewer surges and sprints while still maintaining a quick pace; regroups periodically, encourages pace lines

B:

Our moderately-paced group (17-19 mph) with greater emphasis on maintaining the group with a good pace; encourages pace lines, regroups periodically

C:

Our most civilized group (14-16 mph) concentrating on maintaining the group at a comfortable pace for all. An excellent group for more relaxed riding, newer riders, older riders, and recovery. This is a no-drop ride.
