Hurst Bicycles Inc Shop Rides
Looking for some cycling company? Join us on our shop rides. It's a great way to share the love of cycling with others.
If you are new to group cycling, please make sure you arrive early enough to talk with other cyclists and ride leaders to make sure you pick the right ride for you. There are several levels of riders, and we want you to have a good and safe time. Some of the rides are "no-drop" meaning there are ride leaders and sweepers to make sure everyone gets back to the shop ok. However, several of our rides are "drop" rides without leaders and sweepers, so you'll need to be self-sufficient if you are dropped.
The shop rides will not start when there's lightning or other bad weather in, or expected in the area.
6:00PM Mondays from Bicycles Inc Hurst. We have several rides to choose from. Please make sure you arrive early enough to determine which group to ride with. New Beginners Ride: This ride is all about new riders and those that are learning and want more information on how to ride. The riders can bring whatever bike they have and one of our ride leaders will stay right beside them and shelter and mentor them on the basics of riding on the road.
