Winter rides

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 have one start time at 8:30am and a range of 2 and 3 hour rides based on groups 3 & 6 from our Summer rides. All rides start from and finish at the Market Square.

See here for the Winter ride library


8:302 hourAverage distance 30 miles or 15mph
2 hourAverage distance 34 miles or 17mph
3 hourAverage distance 45 miles or 15mph
3 hourAverage distance 50 miles or 17mph


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.

See here for some of the cafes in our area.


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.
