About The Rippers

“It may be cold, but at least it is dark!”

Not only are we glad you’re here – we are going out and buying new spandex something to celebrate.

As you may know – we are attracted to anything in spandex and spokes. We are more of a roadie bike group – but we like and love all forms. Check out our Weekday Rides page for details on our monday through friday morning rides.  Also, our Weekend Rides occur regularly on the weekends.

We always encourage you or any rider to use the Rippers Google Group to say when they are going out and from where. You can always start your own group ride.

The Rippers do not have a discount at any of our local cycling shops as we do not want to be beholden to one shop – most of the shops have discount programs you can take advantage of on your own. NEBC membership for CycleLoft as an example.

We believe it is better to spend a little more at our local shops than spend online. If you are considering a new bike we recommend a fit first (Joel Adams @ CycleLoft/Burlington, Dean Phillips @ Fitwerx/Peabody, Ed Sassler @ Wheelworks/Belmont, Patria Lanfranchi @ Ride Studio Cafe/Lexington) all will give you the cost of a fit to put against a new baby. Look forward to christening you soon. Welcome and feel free to ask questions or whatever.
