What does "No Drop" mean?

No drop is a classification of group ride in which you WILL NOT be left behind or "dropped" from the group in the event you are unable to maintain the average speed. Should you fall behind, our staff group ride sweeper will be your personal escort to ensure you return to the shop safely.

Trek Bike Store of Charlotte - North Sunday B/C Ride - 9:00AM

Join us at Trek Stores of Charlotte - North for a no drop C ride leaving at 9:00 am!  The average speed is 15-16mph over 26.5 miles. There are stops along the way to allow riders to catch their breath and take a drink. These breaks are usually about 5 minutes in length or until the group collectively decides to move along.  This is a moderate ride for folks wanting a social workout on their bikes. We do ask that folks be able to maintain a 15 mph average over rolling terrain. These rides are intended for those on road bikes, but those on fitness bikes that are able to maintain the average speed are also welcome and encouraged to attend.

Start of the Trek Bike Store of Charlotte - South Sunday RideYour Sunday ride opportunities just got better! Check out the Sunday morning ride with the good folks at Trek Bicycle Store of South Charlotte! Store manager Ang aka "Radchick" and shop employee Mark Hoffman will be rolling...

This ride leaves from the store parking lot at 9:00am on Sunday mornings and offers two route options. Both groups roll out together and split in the first few miles. Our 'no drop' group typically averages 15-17mph and completes a 24 mile route; the longer 31 mile ride is a 'show & go' format (but still aims to keep everyone together) and usually averages about 19mph. Riders from both groups gather afterwards for coffee and refreshments.

Trek Bike Store of Charlotte - South Wednesday Night Road Ride - Postponed until spring

Trek Bike Store of Charlotte Wednesday Night RideTrek Bicycle Store of Charlotte - South offers a Wednesday evening group ride for advanced and intermediate road cyclists. Two groups roll out from the store parking lot approximately 5 minutes apart and ride towards the rolling hills and open country roads of Marvin/Waxhaw. The first group includes both an unsupported A ride (40 miles at 22+mph) as well as a B group with a ride leader (38 miles at 20mph); the A and B group leave together and typically split after a 5-6 mile neutral warmup.

The second rollout includes a B2 and a 'no drop' C group. The B2 group features a 31 mile route at a target pace of 18-19mph, and it has both a ride leader and sweeper. While officially a 'show & go' format, the B2 group aims to keep as many riders together as feasibly possible. The C group is our designated 'no drop' ride and completes a 24 mile route at a target pace of 16-17mph. The C group has a leader and sweeper, and typically forms off the back of the second rollout 3-5 miles after departing from the parking lot together with the B2 group.

A total of four groups offers a great route option for riders of nearly all abilities. Afterwards, riders meet for cold beverages and appetizers (with a special cyclist discount!) just a short walk from the store.
