Miami Cycling Show riders have had the opportunity to ride along most of the groups related on this article, and choose the “Best in Class” rides available every day of the week.

Keep in mind that unless marked “social”, most of these are hard training rides geared towards advanced riders, racers and those that have group riding experience. We strongly recommend to arrive early on this riders, usually a short briefing is held by the Ride leaders before the start “Pedals Up”.

Ride at your own risk and assume all responsibility for yourself and your equipment. Helmets and lights are highly recommended and expected. Check with the sponsoring team or bike shop for specifics about any rides.

If you get dropped or have mechanical issues you are very likely to be left behind on some of these rides, unless the ride has a “Sag Support Car” or a mechanic Ride leader that can provide support on flats or for bonking athletes somewhat.

Road bikes in good working conditions are the appropriate ones and expected.
