Tri Shop Group Rides

Group Rides

Every Saturday at 8am, Tri Shop's group rides leave from the store. With three groups to choose from, every rider will find a home. As long as the weather permits, we ride.

Tri Shop's group training sessions are completely free, fun, and are not meant to be a substitute for coaching or organized training. Join us!

Stay informed and up to date by connecting with the Tri Shop Community Training Group on Facebook. Ride updates, weather updates, other ride opportunities, and other free training opportunities are posted there.
