Group Rides

The Right Gear Bike Shop - Saturday 8:00 AM

ATTENTION:  We hate to do it because this is the ride that started it all, we are going to move this to a SHOW N' GO ride with no designated leader.  If you are going to do this ride, please post to the GroupMe C4 Roadies account or post up on the C4 Facebook page and you will most likely get a group formed. 

Our apologies-- The Management

The SAMBA (Saturday AM Bike Activity) ride features A, B, and C rides intended to accommodate most levels of riders. All groups will leave from The Right Gear in Concord every Saturday morning. A, B, & C Rides will have a pickup point at the Food Lion on South Union Street. The pack usually comes by between 15 and 30 minutes after the designated start time.

If it is raining at the start, then the ride will be canceled, but if we start and get caught out, the we'll "call an audible" on the road. We have been known to ride when the temperature is in the teens so don't assume that no one will be there!


Starting Address: 808 Church Street, Concord, NC 28025

red icon "A" ride:
37 miles. Intended to be a race-pace training ride. Grab a cue sheet and go! If you think you can pull off a 36 mile solo breakaway, then have at it. If you happen to bonk during your quest for bragging rights and the rest of the "A" riders smile as they blow by you, then the B group will be there soon to pick you up.
yellow icon "B" ride:
37 miles. Same route as the "A" ride, but this one is a no-drop, 15-17 mph pace with a designated ride leader/sweeper.
green icon "C" ride:
25 miles.  This ride will run on most of the same roads as the A & B, but will cut off several of the more challenging sections.  For those who want to take it easy and be social, or want to get some riding tips from a more experienced rider, this one's for you. This ride will be a no-drop, 13-15 mph pace ride and is flexible depending on who shows up.
