Crawley Wheelers Cycling Club / All Saturday Rides / Combined A1 & A2 – Saturday 22nd July to Washbrooks (Anti-clockwise)

July 17th, 2017

Combined A1 & A2 – Saturday 22nd July to Washbrooks (Anti-clockwise)

Due to an absence of available ride leaders the A1 & A2 are combined onto the same route this Saturday. Dee Mac Taggart is yet again leading the A2 group down to Washbrooks Family Farm. The A1, who we hope will have a volunteer to assist on the day, will follow the same route at A1 pace.

Going anti-clockwise, it’s out past K2, Pease Pottage, down Grouse Lane, Mannings Heath, and Nuthurst. Back past Hurstpierpoint, bypassing Ansty and under the A23 then up past Warninglid, Handcross and then back down past K2 to the finish.

To help you all enjoy your weekend rides the Ride Organisers and I would like to remind you when on a club ride to:

1. Listen to the ride leader’s instructions.

2. Follow the official route.

3. Do not ride off the front of the group.

4. Stop at the top of climbs and at junctions to enable the ride to re-group.

5. Enjoy the tea stop and support local businesses

If you are thinking about taking up cycling or are picking up the sport again then come along and pick a ride to suit you. There is a no drop policy on all our rides however we would also ask you to consider the distance, elevation gain and guide speed when choosing your ride. We want your experience with us to be both enjoyable and safe.

If you want more information on what to expect on your first ride, how to prepare, details of the routes and advice and re-assurance on riding in a group please see the relevant sections.

Please Note : As a Club we wish to help people progress through the Social ride structures. Therefore we would like to put a greater emphasis on group riding dynamics.
