Sunday 13th August – C Ride Birling Gap
This weeks Club ride heads down to Eastbourne on a 100 mile loop. The cafe stop will be Birling Gap (Beachy Head). Given the extra miles, we will be leaving Affogato in town at 8.30am (an hour earlier than the usual club time depart).
Expect the pace to be average 18 mph but don’t let this put off those who fancy putting some miles in the legs or stepping-up. The pace will be controlled and you’re welcome to ‘sit in’ the group.
Weather currently looking dry for Sunday so expecting a nice ride to the seaside!

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 Captain instructions.
2. Follow the route of the ride Captain.
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 and read Social ride Risk assessment found on Club Website.
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
