Riding is More Fun With Others

It's true. Riding with others only adds to the experience of riding a bike and opens the door to a whole new community of others who enjoy riding bikes just as much as you do. 

Looking for someone to ride with? Join us! We love showing others the best routes in the area, introducing cyclists to new riding buddies, and simply having a great time on two wheels together.

All of our shops host a no-drop ride each weekend. Check out the rides below to find the best one for you.

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.

South Charlotte Wednesday Night Ride
South Charlotte Wednesday Night Ride
Ride Description:
Trek Bicycle Store of Charlotte - South offers a Wednesday evening group ride for advanced and intermediate road cyclists. At 6pm, 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 (30 miles at 18+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 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. This is not a no-drop ride and is currently a show and go format. 
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.

Location: Trek of CLT - South Charlotte
Time: 6:00pm
