CAMP CHARLIE'S RISE AND RIDE

Camp Leaders: Charlie Dubinsky
Contact Info: rtravel10@gmail.com

Publix at Northridge Shopping Center, 1003 E Commercial Blvd
Oakland Park, Florida 33334


Charlie's Rise & RIDE is a supportive, 'No Drop' group ride on Saturday Morning (pedals up @ 07:30AM) with beautiful sunrise/ocean views. The ride distance of 30 miles and depending on participants (riders) each week we are will have two separate groups. There will be an 18+ and a second more paced group. You can ride in the 18+ group to work on your speed and endurance. Ride in the second paced group of 15 – 18 mph while working on your conditioning. The route allows us to regroup at various times so we stay together as a group, making this a great ride not only for experienced riders as well as for beginners worried they might not be able to keep up. Following traffic laws also allows us to regroup and to show respect for others on the road.

The intention of this group is to work on every ones riding skills such as drafting and other group-riding techniques while having fun at a pace that works for all. Helmets are required and lights are encouraged as the sun is still low in the sky at start time. After the ride there is an opportunity to relax and enjoy a well-deserved breakfast while getting to know each other.

Good ride - good vibes - good eats - good peeps...join us.
