The Rear Brigade is a slower group with an average speed of about 10-12 mph and
rides less than 25 miles.
The Rear Brigade
is just what it sounds like - we leave at the same time, from the same place and
take the same route as the faster cyclists, we just do it a bit slower. We also
provide assistance for members who experience mechanical problems or flat tires.
Some of the Ojai Cyclists are very strong fast cyclists and without the Rear
Brigade, new people might feel intimidated at first. We exist to erase that
intimidation and provide an enjoyable cycling experience.
People who would feel comfortable in this group should be able to ride at 10 -
12 mph in a relatively hilly environment on paved roads (public streets.)
