Our Sunday morning Club Rides change for the winter to take into account the darker mornings and the change in pace required for safe riding when road conditions can be less than ideal.
We put out 4 rides all starting at 8.30 from the Market Square:
- 2 hours steady (15-16mph depending on the route).
- 2 hours tempo (17-18mph depending on the route).
- 3 hours steady.
- 3 hours tempo.
|8:30||2 hour steady||Average distance 32 miles at 15-16mph|
|2 hour tempo||Average distance 35 miles at 17-18mph|
|3 hour steady||Average distance 45 miles at 15-16mph|
|3 hour tempo||Average distance 50 miles at 17-18mph|
Monthly Cafe Ride
Additionally, on the last Sunday of the month, there will be a traditional cafe ride. These will be longer and visit a cafe for a half way stop. Keep an eye out on the email distributions detailing these rides.
Bicycle Prep and mudguards
Winter presents some additional challenges to your equipment, so make sure your bike is ready to ride and you carry spares (lots of tubes!). Also, please have some consideration for your fellow riders and fit full-length mudguards with flaps to minimise spray.
