Group “B” 17-20 mph. Riders in this group should be familiar with drafting and be able to actively participate in the pace line. These rides are normally “drop rides” with speeds of 20+ mph at times. This group tends to be a more intense ride over a shorter period than C group. Riders in this group normally ride daily.
