Spring Training Rides Start Up Again with Daylight Savings Time

Buds Ride and Rose Bowl Ride

Daylight Savings is officially here! The clocks have been moved forward and we lost an hour of sleep, but the good news is we get an extra hour of daylight to ride in the evening!

The time change allows for some of SoCal’s popular seasonal training rides to come out of hibernation as we welcome the longer daylight and more time to ride in the Spring and Summer months ahead. Some popular Seasonal Rides that start back up in the Spring include the Rose Bowl Ride and the Bud’s Ride.  

Below is more information on these two long-standing SoCal bicycle group rides.  Be sure to check out SoCalCycling.com’s list of some of SoCal’s favorite Training Rides for some great bicycle training rides to do.
