2023 Piedmont Flyers Training Rides
Come out and join the Piedmont Flyers for our weekly club training rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays!
We typically depart from Shallowford Square in Lewisville, NC at 6555 Shallowford Rd (map link below) and regroup at the Lewisville Fire Station #13 at the corner of Williams and Shallowford Roads.

For 2023, we will offer three pace groups to accommodate a wide variety of riders.
2023 Pace Groups (average speed over entire ride):
A-Group – 22.5+ mph
B-Group – 20-22 mph
C-Group – 16-18 mph (new for 2023)
A and B-groups depart the Shallowford Square @ 6:00pm.
C-group departs from the Shallowford Square @ 6:10pm.
Please respect the pace of the group you are with!
The A, B, and C-groups will ride the same route each evening, so if you get dropped from A or B-group, there is a group behind to pick you up.
A and B-groups will typically start down Williams Rd from Shallowford Square (to minimize the traffic impact on Shallowford Rd.) and regroup at the Lewisville Fire Station while the C-group will depart the Shallowford Square and continue straight down Shallowford Rd. to account for the later start.
Updates for weather, starting times and additional rides are available on the Piedmont Cycling Discord server account. It is highly recommended that you join this server and follow the different text channels.

Please note: Our Tuesday/Thursday training rides are self-supported. These are not “no-drop” rides. Please have the knowledge and tools required to replace a flat or have the means to find transportation back to Shallowford Square. A link to each route is provided below. It is highly recommended that you have a GPS device so you can download the route directly to your device. If you need help doing this, please reach out to other members or email the PFBC President for assistance.
