Delta Pedalers offer regularly scheduled bike rides throughout the week as well as specially scheduled away rides. All of our rides are open to members, non-members, and guests. The following are the weekly scheduled rides. Don’t forget to check out our Away Rides & Events calendar.
Cycling is inherently dangerous. Helmets are required! Riders ride at their own risk!
Although the following will have periodic updates, we are primarily a Facebook group… so look there for the most current updates!
These times will change. We move ride times up or back seasonally based on light/weather/group preference. Plan to arrive 10 minutes before the ride begins.

Ride 1 – Road-Casual (5-10mph); 10-20 miles –ALWAYS starts at 9:00 AM
This is a good introductory ride to our club or for riders new to cycling. Riders go at their own pace and regroup occasionally. This is also a great ride for post injury riding or cyclists with riding problems that need some assistance.

The route can be shortened by turning back towards Brentwood sooner or skipping a section. Great ride for those bridging the gap between the casual ride and the more moderate. Bring $ for post ride coffee and conversation.
