TSS Group Rides

2021 Group rides are BACK!

Remember that rides change depending on the seasons - check this page often for what is going on for both shop rides and events in and around our area.

Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate road bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest carrying a spare tube, CO2 or pump, tire levers, energy food, and maybe a little cash in case we stop.  Many rides are held subject to weather.  Always feel free to give us a call if you have questions.  We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Our Weekly Group Rides

Join us one our group road rides. Whether you are new to cycling or an old pro, we try and support all levels of experience.  Safety, skills, fun, and fitness are the focus of all rides.

Every Tuesday

4:30 PM

Tuesday Interval Session - Ride starts at Rogers High School at 15 Wickham Road in Newport, RI at 4:30pm.
The group will head out in a counter clockwise fashion around Ocean Drive. If you can't make the 4:30 start head in the clockwise direction (opposite of the aforementioned direction) and when you see the group coming prepare to turn around and jump on. The ride is over when you decide you have had enough or it's dark which ever comes first.
The interval starts to amp up on Ruggles continuing on past Fort Adams gradually picking up speed, now heading past the Coast Guard Station onward to Brenton Point, now the pace has quickened heading to Bailey's Beach where there is usually a sprint finish at the cross walk. Recover to do it all over again on Bellevue and along Ruggles.
