The Watauga Leisure Biking Club is an informal club consisting of cyclists of varying ages and abilities who enjoy biking and sightseeing. Weather permitting, we ride every Tuesday and Thursday from May through October. Our rides are as follows:
Tuesday - 9:30 am - meet at Old Cove Creek School 207 Dale Adams Rd, Sugar Grove, NC 28679. This is our standard group ride
Wednesday - advanced ride. Send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to this ride notification list.
Thursday - "Leader's Choice" These rides are chosen by members who are willing to initiate a ride. The Leader chooses the route location, distance and difficulty. Information for this ride will be sent by email on Tuesday night. Leaders should arrive at ride meeting location a little early to meet new riders. Leaders should also stay a little later to "sweep" the route for riders who have fallen behind.
"Pick Up" Rides - These rides may occur on any day of the week. Anyone can initiate these rides and rides will have the same characteristics as the Thursday "Leader's Choice". Announcements are made by email. Your email address has to be on the Watauga Leisure group email list to receive notifications of these rides.
Our area route locations have options ranging from flat to quite hilly. The rides are usually completed in 2-3 hours. Cyclists of all skill levels are invited to join. You do not need to reserve a spot, just show up at the designated meeting spot at the appointed time. You'll see us in the parking lot - if it's your first ride, introduce yourself. We'll be happy to see you. Do not worry about how you'll do - there will be a place to ride no matter what your level of riding.
All riders are responsible for their own equipment, transport and safety. Bicycle helmets are required and identification is recommended. (See Road ID on Links page). Please carpool as often as possible, not only to conserve gasoline but to limit the number of cars using space in the parking areas.
Our mission is to provide group rides for the casual bike rider. The Watauga Leisure Biking club has no fees or dues. However, we encourage anyone who loves biking or loves a bike rider to join the Boone Area Cyclists club. The BAC's mission is to develop and promote safe and accessible bicycling opportunities and infrastructure in the Boone area. More info about the BAC can be found at BooneAreaCyclists.org
Remember, "Leisure" is our middle name - now let's get out there and go "Biking For The Fun Of It"!
