How To Stay Informed:

Most Mondays May through September we hold team training rides.  The exceptions are Monday 5/27, Memorial Day and Monday, July 22, Ragbrai.    

Any changes made to training rides will be  posted in/on the event,  viewable in the spaces team App  and team private facebook group. 

By RSVP'ing to training rides you'll be notified if scheduled rides have to be canceled, locations, routes or times change.  

All changes will also be announced  no later than 5pm on the day of the training ride. 

Velorosa Flat Tire Policy - Flats are inevitable, but being unprepared shouldn’t be. We ask that when you plan to participate in any Velorosa team event or ride you carry the necessary tools and equipment needed to change a tire. While you may not always feel comfortable doing so and another rider will be willing to help or guide you, being self-sufficient is good bike and team etiquette.
