What do the Group / Paces mean?
If you are a newcomer to DunwoodyCycling but you have done other riding in the Atlanta area, and you have some idea how fast
you usually go, these designations should be a guide as to which rides are for you.
     A group - average 18 - 20+ mph   (23+ mph on flats - Aggressive/Attacking ride, often in paceline.
     B group - average 15.5 - 17.5 mph  (18-22 mph on flats - Friendly, competitive ride.
     C group - average 14 - 15 mph     (15-17 mph on flats - Social  pace.
     D group - average under 14 mph   (under 15 mph on flats - Beginners or slower riders.)

The "average" is what would be on your odometer at the end of the ride, while the "on flats" is how fast you generally go on flat terrain.
Other than flat bike trails with no traffic, most riding in Atlanta (including DunwoodyCycling rides) will have an average
which is
2-4 mph less than the "on flats" pace because of slowdowns for hills, turns, stop signs, red lights, etc. (The average
does not include time stopped at a red light but it does include the slowing down and starting out again from the light.)

Caveat: A few DunwoodyCycling rides may be especially hilly ("Ball Mill repeats") or especially flat (some of the "warmup" rides).
In which case, the difference between "average" and "on flats" may be somewhat more or less than above for that particular ride.
Still, these group designations will convey a general sense of what level of rider can do the ride.

Dunwoody Cycling (DC) is purely a social club of cycling enthusiasts. DC does not undertake to provide
any advice or guidance regarding, or supervision of, any club activity or to ensure in any way the safety

opinions that may be offered on the rides.  If you are easily offended, we recommend that you ride with
a nicer group. Seriously.
