First Sunday Ride - December
This is a fun No Drop social ride with a Hare and Hound format. The faster folks lead out and the not so faster folks chase after them. The idea is to ride our bikes and have fun; no one is left behind.
Please check the GORC website and forum to see if this ride is cancelled due to weather or other circumstances. 10am start time!
Location and Map

First Sunday Group Ride at Greensfelder
Come on out for this first Sunday ride with GORC! Gateway Off-Road Cyclists (GORC)'s Monthly First Sunday Ride at Greensfelder is a laid back group ride open to all.
This is an intermediate trail with lots of rocky sections, nice climbs, fun downhills and plenty of flowy singletrack. Course is generally a 10 -12 mile route starting at Visitor's Lot (lot at Allenton and Hencken intersection). 1st Sunday ride is a no-drop ride, meaning no one gets left behind with a hare and hound format - faster folks lead off and will regroup at forks, road crossings, etc. If skill levels are vastly different, we may split up. If you are an advanced rider and want a fast pace group ride with limited stops, check out the Advanced 1st Sunday ride scheduled at 9am.
FOR ADVANCED RIDERS - First Sunday Group Ride II at Greensfelder
This ride is for the fast folks - Historically, the 1st Sunday GORC rides at Greensfelder have been organized as a no-drop, hare-and-hound format which draws a great group of riders of all skill levels.
We want to introduce a duplicate 1st Sunday ride for the more intense, faster paced rider. So if you are advanced level, want a fast paced ride with limited stops, post here. When you are done with your 9am ride, join us at 10!

Read carefully, this ride is for ADVANCED. If you want the traditional, recreational paced hare-and-hound format with frequent stops and don't mind waiting up, RSVP to the other 1st Sunday GORC ride scheduled at 10am.
