We meet at the shop at 9:00. We leave soon after, so please show up on time, preferably a few minutes early.
The rides usually last about 4 hours, so we're back at 13:00. Occasionally a longer ride will go till 13:30-14:00. Ride leaders often suggest a "bail-out option" for those who need to be back in Geneva early.
The Intermediate Ride
A bit more ambitious, 70-80 km, 500-1000 m eg. Rolling hills, with a long climb or two. Coffee break midway. Typical speed on flat 27-30 km/hr; average 23-25 km/hr. Usually no one left behind, unless a rider drastically overestimated their capacities; they will be asked politely to let the others proceed, with directions on how to get back to Geneva.
The Social Ride
50-65 km, 400-800 m elevation gain (eg), coffee break midway. Typically rolling hills, with one or two moderate climbs (200-300 m eg) thrown in to get your heart rate up! We move along, but at a relaxed pace: typical speed on flat 25-27 km/hr; average 21-22 km/hr.
No one is left behind - we wait for you if you're struggling a bit uphill!
The Fast Ride
The name says it all! 90-110 km, 1000-1800 m eg, ambitious climbs. Coffee break sometimes. Typical speed on flat 30-33 km/hr; average 25-27 km/hr. Slower riders will be dropped, with directions on how to get back to Geneva.
