Due to a high percentage chance of heavy rain and wind on SATURDAY The decision has been taken to CANCEL the club rides. Apologies for this but safety first. We will however, be running the rides in exactly the same format and times on SUNDAY. If you have booked via Eventbrite for Saturday and can make Sunday you don’t need to do anything. We appreciate that this will not be convenient for all if that’s the case can you please cancel or let us know via WhatsApp Many thanks as ever for your continued support.
Routes for this week has been added below.
Saturday rides have been posted, please click the link at the bottom of this post to book your place.
The ride times are 8.30am, 8.45am and 9am.
The 8:45am ride is the pace group
Pace group information.
Pace group minimum speed will be 17 mph, all riders to take a turn on the front of the group and the ride leader will oversee this.
If a rider cannot keep with the pace they must have to accept that they may have to be dropped by the group. Its perfectly acceptable to join the group and be dropped if you are trying to gain the fitness to complete the full ride but you must inform the group you are retiring from it.
Please also make sure you have the route on your cycle computer if you don’t know the area.
Routes this week:-
Anti clockwise : https://www.plotaroute.com/route/1536871?units=km
There will be no planned coffee stop but groups may well decide to stop if they wish and if this is the case, please remember the reputational considerations etc.
Group sizes will be a maximum of 8 but will have to split into smaller groups if you decide to stop for a coffee, e.g. 4+4. The requirements on Test and Trace still stand hence we are continuing to use Eventbrite to schedule rides.
In addition, also to remind everyone that if you, a member of your household or anyone you have been in recent contact with has a cold, flu or COVID symptoms, we ask that you do not join us on Club rides until after the period prescribed government advice.
