Every Saturday is Team BBC's Saturday Social, a friendly, social-pace ride intended to welcome both new and experienced road riders.

We meet at Artifact Coffee at 8:30 am to grab espressos and pastries before we roll out 9 am for a 31-mile route out toward Timonium and returning to the City, covering both hilly and flat terrain. This is a no-drop ride, featuring an average pace of roughtly 14-15 m/hr, but there are three segments where riders are encouraged to drop the hammer and test their legs! We sprint at:

- Thornton Rd. climb b/w Seminary and W Timonium
- W Padonia b/w Cleghorn and Falls
- Bellemore climb

Occasionally, the group will also charge the climb up Park Heights from Caves to Greenspring Valley Rd.; this is on a case-by-case basis. We regroup immediately after every sprint point and continue as a group.

Safety is a priority on this ride. We stop at all stop lights and stop signs, and group ride behavior (attacking the front, half-wheeling, etc.) will not be tolerated. Poor weather, such as significant precipitation, excessive cold or heat, cancels the ride.

People new to group riding are especially welcome to join this ride. We aim to teach people that road riding can be safe and fun, and we will work on group riding skills with all riders, both new and old.

We look forward to riding with friends, new and old!
