The Narragansett Bay Wheelmen offer group bike rides every Sunday with a variety of mile options. Everyone is welcome, member of the club or not. Members paint arrows on the route to let the riders know that there is a turn approaching. After the turn there are confirmation arrows and also dangerous road conditions like potholes have a bright orange circle painted around them.
Today’s ride had a very large turnout and every level of abilities was well represented from the 20+ MPH, full kit, gnarly hammerheads to the sub 10 MPH, overweight, grey haired, retired, comfort bike riders and all those that fall between these categories.
It was a cool 10 AM start with the temperature of 45 F. It got a bit warmer as the ride progressed, but not a whole lot. As the weeks progress the fitness of the riders is evident. Everyone has just a little more oomph at the beginning of the ride and the lot empties out a little sooner every week.
