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 leaders instructions.
2. Follow the route of the ride leader.
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.
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.
