To help you prepare for training, check our Training Guide. Training Ride Leaders: Submit a training ride using the Training Ride Submission Form, email to Each rider should read, prior to a ride and sign the WAIVER at the training ride. We require all riders wear a helmet and be present for the safety talk for each training ride. Safety First! Have FUN!

The purpose of our training rides is to provide an opportunity for first-time Riders to train, meet other riders, learn safety, and ride in a group setting. The pace for our rides are B/C level, which is approx. 10-12 mph, a relaxed, casual pace (pace may vary depending on the group). We understand there are schedule conflicts and varying pace levels so not everyone participates. We hope to offer a variety of rides, but need more training ride leaders to do so, especially veteran Riders at a faster pace. Other options for faster pace rides are with long-time Ride sponsor, Erik's Bike Shop and TCBC (Twin Cities Bicycling Club). Let us know if you are willing to lead training rides,

Thank you volunteer training ride leaders for all your help in preparing Riders for the 12th Annual Red Ribbon Ride!
Check back often as details are updated each week!
