Word on the Road
Updated 12 Mar 2013
2013 The Monday & Tuesday Night Social Rides have started up
again for the 2013 season. This is the ultimate
beginner-friendly ride. We do 15-20 miles at the pace of the
slowest rider; the purpose is to ride and chat. Meet
at 6:00 pm on the southern bridge on Technology Loop in
TAMUs Research Park. A clear headlight, red taillight and a
helmet are required equipment for participation in this
ride. However, no fancy bike needed.
The Saturday Flagpole Ride departs from the flagpole on the main
quad of the Texas A&M campus (about 250 meters east of the
Albritton Bell Tower on Old Main Drive) at 8:45 am every Saturday.
Helmets required. Beginners are welcome but should be: able to
fix their own flats, familiar with the route, and
confident/prepared to ride home solo if dropped from a fast group.
