Thursday night TT training [cancelled]

Update:
This event is now cancelled.

Weather depending, TT Training will be this Thursday 6th of May. Like last year we will use one of the club segments as the route and ride it like a conventional TT with riders setting off at 30 second intervals and being self timed via Strava so you can monitor your own progress.

Groups will be limited to six riders but we may have two groups or more depending on demand up to a maximum of 15 riders.

Saturday 1st May Club Rides

Update: 
Due to the increase in demand, we have decided to increase the group sizes from 6 to 8. This is well within the ceiling set by British Cycling but will mean that 8 is fine when riding but when forming up and if groups stop for coffee then groups can no be more than 6 (eg 4+4 etc). If you have any queries, please get back to us. Please book through the button 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.

We have received feedback and several requests for the re-establishment of a ‘Pace’ ride so we have designated the 8.45am as a ‘Pace’ ride.

The below gives an overview of the expectation of those riding with that group.

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.
