SJW Ride Classification:   approved Nov 2015

Cruising speed = speed a cyclist must be able to maintain on flat terrain with little wind. Speed will vary with grade and wind.  Ride leaders will attempt to keep speeds near the middle of the class range but all riders must be able to maintain the higher speeds of the range for reasonable amounts to time.

Note: Class A & B: No obligation to wait for stragglers/breakdowns if cue sheet, map, or directions provided.

Note: Class C & D: Group waits for stragglers & breakdowns. Cue sheet not mandatory but may be available.
