CRBC Weekly Ride
Registration is not Required
The Minions Plus ride is the evolution of the weekly Monday Minions ride.  The Minions Plus ride is longer, faster and develops skills to the next level.  We will ride protected bike ways and some roadways with shoulders for 17-20 miles at a pace of 14-16 mph.  The paceline will be tighter and corners rolled at speed.  We will learn how to evaluate riding conditions on the fly and how to effectively communicate within a tight group.  We will even learn how to eat and drink (WATER) while riding.  While this is a NO DROP ride, it is expected that riders can maintain a minimum of 14 mph pace for the duration of the ride.

The Minions Plus ride will roll at 6:30 PM on the first and third Wednesday of each month.  Meet at the Ft Myers Cyclery at 3630 Cleveland Av, Ft Myers (formerly Ft Myers Schwinn). Equipment required: Helmets, water bottles, strong front and rear lights and a desire to learn and have fun.  Road bikes are recommended since this is a longer and faster ride. For information, contact: Oscar Rattenborg (239-220-9052,) Diane Holm (239-841-3407,) or Mike Holm 239-939-2899. Visit the interactive map.
