General information

 

Club ridee start from the rear of the club rooms unless otherwise stated. See advice for riders, and please take care in choosing the ride that fits your ability/aspiration/determination.

 

 

Ride categories.

Every Saturday

 

Ride A – 09:15 for 09:30. Novice/Easy paced 25 to 30 miles, back around 1.30pm.  This ride is a good introduction to riding within a group for beginners and also those who prefer a more leisurely ride with a café stop.

 

Ride B– 09:15 for 09:30. Speed 12 to 15mph, 30 to 40 miles, back around 1.30pm. This ride is a good introduction to riding within a group but at a brisker pace than that of the A ride, again with a café stop.

 

Ride C– 09:15 for 09:30. Speed 16+ mph, 40 to 50 miles, back around 1.30pm. This ride is suggested for the fitter and perhaps more experienced rider, again with a café stop.

                            

Ride D – 09:15 for 09:30. Speed 18+ mph, 40 to 50 miles, back around 1pm. This ride is suggested as the step-up from the C ride.

 

 

Ride on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month

 

Ride E– 09:15 for 09:30. Speed 12 to 15mph, 50 to 60 miles, back 3.30pm. This ride is a good introduction to riding within a group but at a brisker pace and a longer distance than that of the A ride, again with a café stop for lunch.

 

Ride on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.

 

Ride F– 08:45 for 09:00, 60 to 80 miles dependant on the weather, at the pace of the slowest, no fixed return time, with a café stop (or two).

Ride etiquette

 

If you have to leave during a ride please inform the ride leader, or ask anyone else who is continuing with the ride to inform the ride leader for you.  If you just “vanish” the ride will be disrupted as a search will be made for you and possibly a call made to your given emergency phone number.

 

Although there are no hard and fast rules regarding the use of mobile phones on a club ride, please remember that if you stop to answer your mobile phone the group will also have to stop.
