Ride Description

The People Cycling Board is hosting a Ride Leader Seminar (RLS) in Georgetown, KY on Thursday, May 23, 2024, the day before the People Cycling Horsey 100 tour.  The purpose of the RLS is to familiarize People Cycling Members with the process of leading tours with our club.  It will cover the benefits of being a tour leader, as well as all the nuts and bolts of how to put a ride together.  Some of the topics will include:

  • How to create a budget for the tour, and how to manage the money;
  • How to use Ride with GPS to create and manage routes;
  • How to communicate with potential participants to make sure they are suitable for the tour;
  • How to negotiate prices and inclusions with Commercial Tour Companies for International tours; 
  • How to support the participants if help is needed; and
  • How to choose an area that would be a great place for a tour (hint, your local riding areas are your best bet since you know the area).

We will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in Georgetown, KY, where there will be one group dinner. Breakfast and lunch will be provide on the day of the RLS.

You will need to arrive at the Hilton Garden in on Wednesday, May 22nd.  The RLS will be in the Elkho… (Join People Cycling to read more)

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

What are you waiting for? Join today to see what bicycle adventure awaits you in our club.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
