Sunday Slow Ride: (Every 3rd Sunday)
Goodale Park 1pm
Ride at the speed of slowest person, great for teaching friends how to navigate on the road, stop lights, etc.

Monday Night Ride:
15th x high 10pm
MNR is a social ride that meets 52 weeks a year with no regard for inclement weather. Distance and pace are dictated by those who show up, maintaining a NO DROP policy. The group often takes breaks to chat and get to know fellow riders while exploring the city. Summer rides are typically bigger and slower, and break at public parks. Winter rides are typically smaller, and faster and tend to take breaks to conduct "urban exploration" of interesting properties. Drinking and smoking is common on this social ride. The ride typically ends at High Beck Tavern for beer and free pizza.

Tuesday Night Crit Practice:
OSU Schottenstien parking lot 6:00pm
Several short races. Opportunity to practice starts, setup, finish, then recover and try it all again.Racing may include points race, miss & out, win & out, scratch race, etc. If you don't know what that means, we'll explain it when you get there. A, B, Junior, Women categories. Entry Fees $3 with a USAC road license, $8 if you need a 1 day license.These are laid back races -- good intense workout, good cornering practice. No prize money -- no arguing about who placed where.
