This is a Voluntary Group of Bicyclists who gather periodically to bicycle together in the Stateline area. Everyone who cycles on the rides is responsible for their own safety and their own decisions. There is no cost to participate.
Our “Mantra” is NO BICYCLIST IS LEFT BEHIND
There are no dues or expenses associated with this group
The most popular day to ride is Tuesday @ 5:30pm, there is a group that also rides on Saturday @ 8:00am
The rides can printed from the Spinners website or downloaded to a Smartphone or GPS device.
There are 4 categories of bicyclists who ride on Tuesdays:
- Hammers; avg speed 18 mph +++ (Avg ride is 25 miles +)
- Rabbits; avg speed 15-17 mph (Avg ride is 25 miles +)
- Cruisers; avg speed 12-14 mph (Avg ride is 20 miles or less)
- Recreational Cyclists; 12 mph or less (Avg ride is 15 miles or less)
It is important to ride with the group that fits your skill level
The Saturday Ride is a blend of the 4 categories of cyclists above
If a cyclist is falling off the pace, another rider should join that rider and escort them back to home base i.e. The Beloit Bicycle Company
The decision as to the route to ride for that day is a “group decision”
We strongly encourage the use of helmets.
Riders are encouraged to bring cell phones, hydration beverage, spare inner tube and means to fill it (pump, CO2), blinking lights, and high visibility clothing on every ride
Riders are required to follow the “rules of the road” i.e. observe stop lights, stop signs, use hand signals & ride in single file when appropriate
Sharing of stories, good, bad, or indifferent, is encouraged.
All rides start and end in the rear parking lot of Beloit Bicycle Company, 110 W. Grand Avenue.
