Group Rides

ADVERTISE HERE


Here is a list of current weekly "open" group rides in Miami-Dade, the list is a work in process and is edited periodically. There's a few rides missing and some of those listed may need to be updated. Feel free to post a comment with any amendments you would like to see made to a ride or if you wish to add a ride not yet listed. The goal is to have every "open" group ride listed here, this will be a great asset to local cyclists looking to train with a group and for tourists visiting Miami, FL seeking to do the same. Check this page often for updated listings of "open" group rides in or around the Miami-Dade area.

Keep in mind that most of these are hard training rides geared towards advanced riders, racers and those that have group riding experience. Ride at your own risk and assume all responsibility for yourself and your equipment. Helmets and lights are highly recommended. Check with the sponsoring organization or bike shop for specifics about any rides. Some rides have no leader and are simply "pick-up rides". If you get dropped or have mechanical issues you are very likely to be left behind on some of these rides. Bring an appropriate bike in good working order, water, energy food, spare tube, pump & tools. Bringing a cell phone and cash is also suggested. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements.
