MBRC Road Cycling Rides
Club Road Cycling Rides
Many of our members also organize other types of rides; Mountain Biking, Cyclocross, Track, Fat Biking, which are organized within the member forum.
The Mississauaga Bicycle Racing Club is mainly a road bicycle riding/racing group, this means that our members use drop handle bar bikes in group road rides, they are light & fast on paved roads, when riding in a MBRC group road ride certain bikes are not allowed:
- Flat mountain bike handlebars are not allowed in road group rides.
- TT style Triathlon bars are not allowed in road group rides.
- Fixed gear track bikes are not allowed in road group rides.
- eBikes are not allowed in any group rides.
There are a few items that are important to a enjoyable road ride, members will need to be prepared for the following:
- To leave at the scheduled time of the roll-out (departure).
- Your bike must be in good working order, your tires at proper pressure & not overly worn.
- You must bring a spare tube, a tire pump & basic tools to preform a tire tube change.
- You must be prepared for the weather, being dressed for the elements, in the colder weather its best to dress in layers, in the heat be prepared with sun block.
- Members must have enough water to make it through the ride distance to the next refuel location.
