The Ride Connection – Where Cyclists Connect

We recently started a forum called Post-a-Ride so TRC members could ask if any one wanted to join them on a ride. I like the concept but it seems most people are too shy to ask.


What then to say about the new The Ride Connection website that iinvites individuals to post routes and rides so that you can search anywhere int he US for a ride? Sounds like a good idea but it depends upon particiipation. I really can’t see myself redoing all the routes I’ve created under the Favorites menu on the website.

And one more ride-sharing site? I’m exhausted. –Corrie


Welcome to The Ride Connection; your cycling source on the web!

So what does The Ride Connection offer you as a cyclist? Our mission is to match cyclists with other cyclists and riding opportunities. Although cycling is a great solitary sport we have a fundamental belief that cycling is more fun when enjoyed with others. We provide powerful search tools to connect you with other cyclists with similar goals and abilities.

Here are some of the website’s cool features:

Automatic ride notifications by email based on your profile and preferences.

Sophisticated search for members, rides, ride groups and routes.

Post impromptu, scheduled and recurring rides.

Google maps integration including feet of climbing.

Printable cue sheets in PDF, Word and Excel.

Anonymous email through the site until you get to know your future riding buddy.

Create favorite ride and favorite route lists. Be notified if your favorite rides change.

The ability to link your ride and route. Rides and routes can function separately as well.

Create and join ride groups. Just add a ride group to your favorites list. It’s that simple.

Ride RSVP. Let the ride leader know if you will ride with them.

SSL encryption. Your connection is as secure as online banking.

These are just a few of The Ride Co
