We've been members of the Colorado Springs Cycling Club off and on since 2005, resigned up in 2016 BUT, as of July, 2016 we have decided to "leave" the CSCC for good and try to start our own "Casual Bicycling" Group, called the: Rail Trail Riders of Colorado Springs, CO. We will be mostly riding the local area "Rail Trails, bike paths, lanes, etc. around the City of Colorado Springs, CO.
We've noticed that most of the rides the CSCC was doing were just "Too Fast" for my wife JoLynn and we wanted a more, FUN, relaxed riding group. Were not into "distance", etc., just want to ENJOY a ride with other like riders. We will be using a VERY mellow, easy pace, that even families and kids should be able to ride! We have a website, (see link below), facebook page, we use as a "BLOG" and are set up as a "club" on bikejournal.com So we have our "ride/event" schedule listed in at least "2" places on the internet.
We know it will take YEARS to grow but we decided, it's TIME, for a Casual Riding Group, this is NOT for Racers, Long Distance Riders or Competitive type riders. We will have stops and usually find a place for lunch or a snack during the rides. We had our first "official" ride on "Saturday, July 9th." LOL, yes, it was just Jo and I but we now feel like it's started! Join us! :)
