Ride Types

 

Official Sunday Rides -

Category Long -

A range of challenging rides for more experienced riders. These rides go at a faster pace (17+ mph) and cover a significant distance or lumpier course, usually 50-80 miles (depending on weather, terrain and ability of group). On these rides, we will usually have at least one café stop.

Category Medium -

Our medium rides are ideal for riders keen on building their experience.  Distance covered will usually vary between 30 and 50 miles, and the speed will always depend on the ability of the group on the day, but will typically be 14-17mph. Medium routes will generally offer a more challenging profile in terms of climbing than the Social.

Category Social –

Our social rides will generally be of similar length and speed to the medium but will be a flatter profile. As the name suggests, our socials are for riding and chatting. A stop at one of our favourite cafes will be assured.

Category Short -

Ideal for those just starting in the sport and building their confidence in group riding or just looking for a short outing. These are with a pace chosen to cater for the needs of the group, but usually 12-14 mph.

Official Wednesday Rides - Summer Months

All Categories - 6pm

Rides of about two hour duration set out from Alf Jones with groups set up on the night so that we can ride safely in groups of similar ability.

Ride event notices are posted on club Facebook pages accessible to paid up members in advance including route details to allow for downloading to GPS devices.

Members regularly post details of rides on Saturday and other days with details of route, start times and likely pace.
