Type
Road
Level
Novice
Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Intermediate
Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Advanced
Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.

Description
i Cycle Saturday Morning Sprint at 8am, We ride the 23 mile route again on Saturday mornings, but at a 20+ mph pace with sprints up to 30 mph. Not a no-drop ride, this is a fast paced, racer's training ride. Best for experienced cyclists. Helmets required on all iCycle rides.

This is a group ride on the streets of Houston in traffic. The route is chosen for scenic beauty and to avoid traffic, major thoroughfares and bad streets, but you are still riding on city streets with cars. Exercise caution and obey traffic laws. Watch for and call out road hazards. Standard group riding etiquette applies to all iCycle rides: Strive to keep the group together, call out or point out hazards, no earbuds or loud sound systems, stay off aerobars, ride smoothly and predictably, avoid abrupt maneuvers.
