Free Group Rides
What is a Free Group Ride?
Our Free Group Rides range from leisurely 10-mile jaunts to 100-mile endurance rides. Our rides begin all over the Puget Sound region, and travel through many types of terrain and conditions, from city streets to dirt trails.
Cascade’s Free Group Ride Leaders developed our Ride SMART safety briefing. Learn how to Ride SMART!
Who can ride?
Everyone is welcome on Free Group Rides. Read more about joining us on a ride on our newcomer’s page.
What do I need to bring?
All rides are classified according to pace and other characteristics. To pick the right ride for your skills and energy level, review the guide to ride classifications. Riders should be able to ride within the pace indicated by the ride leader. If you are unsure of your ability to keep up, start with a slower-paced ride. You can always choose a faster ride next time.
