Blue Ride Program Spring 2024 - Road

Blue RiDE is all about advanced group riding skills. You'll develop those skills while training for a 50 mile ride. RiDErs need basic familiarity with shifting and braking systems of their road bike and the fitness ability to complete a 25+ mile ride with 1 or 2 rest stops on week one of Blue RiDE… so you must start with a base of fitness and some endurance. 

Ongoing attendance of the scheduled RiDEs and weekly training on your own will be strongly encouraged, and required in some cases… skipping RiDEs and mid-week training will prevent participants from building the necessary endurance to complete the program. 
We form small groups depending on need and speed. You will have a team that helps you learn advanced group skills. These skills are also great for the stronger solo rider or triathlete. It’s a great way to RiDE and meet like-minded people from all parts of the KC Metro area... All while learning the skills necessary to participate in area group rides with all the new friends you will make!

Road bike, helmet, cycling computer required. See FAQ for more information.

You need to complete a 20+ mile ride on rolling terrain (3-6% grades ) so we can place you in a group with similar pace. We will require a screenshot or link to a recent (this year) ride you've done from Strava, Garmin, MapmyRide, etc. so we can verify the speed, distance and overall time. After registration, please email your ride to We'll send you a reminder after you register.
