Winter rides

Our Sunday morning club rides change for the winter to take into account the darker mornings and change in pace required for safe riding when road conditions can be less than ideal.

We put out four rides starting at 8.30am from the Market Square:

8:302 hour steadyAverage distance 32 miles at 15-16mph
2 hour tempoAverage distance 35 miles at 17-18mph
3 hour steadyAverage distance 45 miles at 15-16mph
3 hour tempoAverage distance 50 miles at 17-18mph

Monthly café ride

On the last Sunday of the month, we do a traditional café ride.  These are typically longer and visit a café 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.
