Club Social Events/Rides
Club Ride Organisation
Sunday Club Rides set out from the Clubhouse at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday during British Summer Time and at 9:30 during the winter.
The rides follow quiet country roads to a variety of tea stop locations and are from 30 to about 60 miles in total, depending on fitness and weather. The main group aims to ride at an average of about 15 mph but we always ride at the pace of the slowest riders in the group and use a 'no-drop' policy. If in doubt, have a word with the Club Captain, John Aldridge, or whoever is leading the ride.
Depending on attendance the main ride may split into slower and / or faster groups but we cannot guarantee that this will happen. We also aim to have a 'steady' ride at around 10 mph for 10-15 miles to the tea stop but, again, cannot guarantee this. However, we will always ensure that no riders get left on their own, unless this is their choice.
Groups take different routes, but aim to meet at the designated tea stop at about 11:00 - 11:30 a.m. Rides return to the Clubhouse for about 13:00 p.m., depending on the tea stop location.
New riders, fast or slow, are always very welcome to join us prior to becoming members. If you are in any doubt, please email the Club Captain using the form on the right of this page.
