Wabash River Ride Training Program

Welcome to the Wabash River Ride Training Program! This program is aimed squarely at novice riders. So whether you are new (or returning) to cycling, new to club/group rides, or just generally don’t go very fast, this program is for you!

Starting the week after the New Rider Callout, we will begin with a very short and slow route. Each week after that, we will gradually push the envelope. Gain confidence with distance, move a little faster, get some practice riding in a group.

The primary purpose of this program is to get new riders ready for the Wabash River Ride, but along the way we’ll build up your confidence to tackle other club rides. Most Novice rides are under 12 miles, E rides will be anything from 14 to about 30 miles. Spend a few weeks with us and you’ll be in a good position to identify which category you’d like to further pursue.

The full schedule is listed below. Please send any questions to (brianslick at mac dot com).
