2017 has arrived and Team LACBC is beginning its Climate Ride training! This will be the first official Team LACBC Training ride where they’ll roll parts of Pasadena. You don’t want to miss this one. So, come on out and roll with Team LACBC as they sets their sights on June.

When: 1/15/17
Where: Union Station
Meet: 8:30am
Roll: 9:00am
Adv/Challenge Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18356379
Beg/Intermediate Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18356376

Climate ride is a rain or shine event and the training rides will mimic that, with caution of course.

The route you choose depends on what shape you’re in and how strong you are on the bike you’re riding. We highly recommend a Road Bike, Fixed (if you’re a strong rider), Hybrid (beginner/intermediate). All training rides are no drop rides. (meaning, unless your bike completely falls apart, we will not leave you).

At the first training ride they’ll have a list items for you to consider riding with at all times.

For now, make sure you have the following:
Extra tube that fits your tire, tire lever, patch kit, water bottle cage, water bottle, helmet.
