PVC Saturday Morning Ride (SMR)
July 9, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 amFree
The PVC SMR is a weekly club ride, open to all with competent group riding skills.
The ride is about 30 miles long, departing from Cyclemania and goes throughout South Portland and Cape Elizabeth to Prouts Neck and back along the shore. It’s mostly rolling to flat terrain. There are 4 major sprints on the men’s ride: “Prouts Neck”, “Fire Hydrant Hill”, “Inn By the Sea”, and of course the “Cookie Jar”. This is the largest competitive ride in the state and attracts all major Maine teams, with riders from Bethel, Augusta, and York and Cumberland counties. The men’s ride is an intensity pace* (>23MPH average) and has as many as 75 riders in the summer.
Starts the first Saturday in March (if roads are clear of snow) through the last Saturday before Thanksgiving; every week leaving promptly at 7:30am. Expect a 1.5 hour ride and join us post-ride at PVC sponsor Coffee by Design on Diamond Street.
