Learn to Group Ride


Group riding clinic offered Saturday, June 4th

[Register now!]

Are you new to group riding and/or the Speed River Cycling Club? Are you interested in developing your group riding comfort and skills in a safe, small-group setting? Then consider attending the SRCC group riding clinic on Saturday, June 4th! Catering to the novice rider, our group riding clinic will:

  • focus on pack riding basics, including safety, communication, formations, rotations, technique and bike handling skills
  • consist of 4 – 10 student riders and 2 – 4 experienced, group-ride leader/instructors
  • favour drilling and practice over lecture and theory; teach less, ride/learn more

At approximately two hours in length, our group riding clinic will meet, start and end at the Guelph Lake Dam on Conservation Road (click here for location). Participation is on a sign-up basis only, and is open to all current SRCC club members as well as those on an OCA ‘Try-a-Ride’ waiver (see below).


Date/Time: Saturday, June 4th, 9am – 11am
Location: Meet/end at Guelph Lake Dam, Conservation Road [map]

Try-a-Ride Program
The ‘Try-a-Ride’ program permits non-members to participate in one club ride per year, maximum, by completing the requisite OCA insurance waiver. Please indicate your intent to ‘try a ride’ when signing up for a group ride clinic (if applicable). We also ask that all participants meet the minimum fitness requirements of the entry-level, Wednesday ‘Social Ride’, i.e. “can ride for two hours non stop at a pace that averages 25 km/h or greater.”
