·Ride distances are between 50 and 75 miles.·Average speed is 15-17 mph depending on the terrain. ·8:30 start summer, 9:00 start winter (usually ties in with BST)·Cafe stop at around half distance. ·Occasionally, the route might be changed from the one listed, particularly when the  ride is unsuitable for the weather conditions.

What kind of rider are you?

You have a good base of fitness.

You are riding regularly and can cover 50 miles at close to the ride pace.

You ride regularly over mixed (hilly and flat) terrain.

What to expect

These rides are not suitable for those new to cycling or occasional leisure cyclists. The club runs other rides on Sundays and through the week which provide opportunity to build up distance and speed and gain experience of group riding.

No one will get abandoned but there is a range of ability in the group so riders might fall off the pace at times, particularly on hillier rides. We will slow the pace or wait at suitable points to regroup.

If you find the pace is too high please SPEAK UP so the speed can be adjusted or the route altered to get you home safely.

Do not underestimate the fitness required to ride in a group at 17 mph for 50+ miles.

Please familiarise yourself with the routes in advance of the rides and upload to GPS devices.
