MC3 Group Rides

Ride coordinator Angela Schmidt has done a great job revamping our group rides for the 2015 season. This season we’ve got 24 road rides (a series of changing routes that get progressively challenging throughout the year) and 13 mountain-bike excursions to different trails around the state. Stay tuned for our MC3 U mountain-bike clinic series this fall!


Monday Road Rides — New & Improved!

This year, we’re trying something new. Instead of doing the same route week after week, we’re mixing it up. Led by two ride leaders, the rides will progress through the season in distance and difficulty, with a new route each month.


May: Ruffner/John Rogers/78/Grants Mill — 16 miles
June: Hill Climbing Route (Partial & full Karl Daly/Old Leeds) — 20 miles 
July: Queenstown/Roper/Floyd Bradford — 30 miles
August: 78/Rex Lake/Zigler/Bailey/Cemetery — 35 miles
September: Rex Lake/Sicard Hollow/Miss Myras/Overton — 40 miles

Where: Meet in the parking lot in front of Birmingham Bicycle Co, 1105 Dunston Ave.
When: Arrive by 5:15 p.m. to pump tires, etc. Wheels roll at 5:30 sharp.
Distance: Varies

New: Bi-monthly Mountain Bike Outings

We’re changing the Wednesday-night MTB ride to cover more ground and introduce you to some of the best trails in our trail-rich state! This guided ride is led by two ride leaders who know the trails and are ready to help with tips and help with mechanicals. The ride will meet at the specified trailhead at 9 a.m. and roll out at 9:45. When necessary, group will split into two groups based on speed and ability. No Chix left behind.
