Regional Ride Possibilities

No-Leader Rides Compiled from SBC Ride Listings


Terrain Classifications  (From Cascade Bicycle Club in Seattle):

Terrain indicates the most common or average terrain type of the ride and should be considered relative to the length and overall difficulty of the ride. For example, a long-distance ride with a lot of elevation gain will be overall less challenging than a short ride with equal elevation gain. Consider the pace and frequency of regroup as well to understand how advanced a ride may be.


  Mostly flat: Trails and/or mostly flat roads with a possible gentle uphill
  Rolling: Climbs are short and easy, not too numerous
  Some hills: A few short, steep hills, some moderate upgrades and/or longer gentle climbs
  Hilly: Consistent or continuous climbing
