Beijing – Road Bike Rental – Saturday Club Ride
60 km - 100 km - Weekly Rides - Saturday
- Region Asia Pacific
- Country China
- City Beijing
Each Saturday our Beijing partner organises a big group ride in the mountains on the outskirts of Beijing. Each week the route is different and depends on group size/ability as well as the pollution status and weather although they are always approx 60 – 100 km.
These rides are aimed at the confident /competent rider, wanting to join an established group of local riders. Whilst there is a ride leader, the expectation is that riders are very experienced at riding in a large peloton, and are comfortable not knowing the exact route the rides will take.
Riders are allocated into groups according to rider ability and speed, which is provided on booking – Beginner, Intermediate or Elite. If you want a local experience & a bit of adventure with a great group of guys and girls, while travelling internationally, this ride is for you.
