Summit Cycling Club

The Summit Saturday Ride

The Summit Saturday morning ride is our premier weekly, year-around club training ride using a double paceline structure for EXPERIENCED riders.  This ride is open to Summit members, guests and experienced riders from other teams.  We reserve the right to request that you do not ride with us for any reason.

Start Location:  Parking lot at PJ Whelihan’s Pub at 1854 Marlton Pike East (Route 70 and Greentree Rd), Cherry Hill, NJ.  

Time:  Wheels out at 8:00 A.M. in the Spring/Summer (April - September) and 9:00 A.M. in the Fall/Winter (October - March).  

Use good judgment regarding inclement weather and safe road conditions.  Cancellations are not posted. 

Safe group ride etiquette is a must and all Summit Ride Rules must be followed.

New riders are asked to introduce themselves to a club member prior to the ride and communicate with the group to become familiar with the route and ride format.  A signed waiver may be requested from all non-club members. Helmets are required on all rides. E-bikes, recumbents and tandems are not allowed.

Riders are expected to be experienced and to possess good bike handling skills and be comfortable in single and double pace-lines, riding in fast groups and being capable of changing a flat and otherwise taking care of oneself on a ride.  This is a fast ride and riders do get dropped from time to time. The club will stop to assist riders with flats and mechanicals and will try to watch out for new riders but if you drop off the back the group will likely not wait.  

This is a friendly but competitive club ride and we take safety, good group-ride etiquette, and maintaining the paceline structure of our ride very seriously.  Our members are not shy about calling out disruptive or unsafe behavior. Stay focused and hold your line, avoid darting, crossing wheels, crossing the yellow line, hard abrupt braking or making other sudden unexpected moves. And, don't look back during sprints which even causes experienced riders to swerve and possibly crash.   

Riders that are considered by the group to disregard our ride format and/or be a danger to others are not welcome and will be asked to leave.
