If you’re a regular rider but want to increase your fitness, get used to climbing, ride with a group or just get to the ‘next level’, then these rides are a good introduction to the club. We tend to average around 10-12 mph (with stops) and the group will aim to stay together for the whole ride. Each ride has a mid-morning café stop; there is the option at this point to return home for around lunchtime under the guidance of an experienced rider. Most rides will carry on to the lunch stop and return by late afternoon, although with agreement we might stay out longer if the weather is kind. Some ‘Short Rides’ (often when a longer event is also taking place) will turn around after the mid-morning stop.
