How many miles do you ride?

In the Spring we start off with low mileage while riders return from winter hiatus. Some riders have been training through the winter, so they might ride a little further. In general, though, it's a slow build up of base miles over the course of a few months. Early spring rides may be in the 15-20 mile range. After we move to an earlier start, rides become longer. Many riders are training for an event.

There are always options to shorten a long ride. For example, a 35 mile (RT) ride to Gloucester will pass through Manchester (a 15 mile round-trip from Salem). Several riders may stop in Manchester for breakfast and then head back to Salem, while others might continue on to Gloucester (either before or after breakfast.) Many of our longer route choices have shorter ride options.
