Marty's Weekly/Monthly Rides

Rides are back!

We have lots of rides leaving from all three of our stores for all types of riders and levels. Our rides are good places to meet like minded individuals who enjoy riding with other people. All of our rides are friendly and we invite you to be part of our community. Helmets are required on all rides. On road rides please ride responsibly and share the road.  Rides are seasonal and the evening ones stop sometime in the fall. Check back for fall/winter rides.

All of our rides leave at the time posted. Please arrive with enough time to get ready to ride.

We would like all people riding to sign a waver for the year. The waver can be printed out here. You can also stop in the shop and get one.(when we are open)

Our rides and events can also be found on our Google Calendar here!

Sunday

Morristown Sunday Road Ride

Mark's Sunday Morristown Ride - For Experienced Riders This is a 50-60 mile ride that can leave from a variety of locations(see Team Marty's Facebook group). Start time is typically 8:30 a.m. but may change. The route will vary each week and be posted on the Team Marty's Road Facebook page. The ride will usually have about 3500-4000 feet of climbing and will average 16-17 mph. .

"This is meant to be a "B" pace social ride for fit cyclists. If you think about some of the "event" rides I have had - the breakfast ride and New Year's day ride - this is what the Sunday shop ride will be. For those that are looking for something faster with more opportunities to attack and go for PRs, this is not the ride to do. Feel free to organize those rides separately and join this ride when you are looking for something a bit less intense.
