Penny is retaining the ladies lead with 15 points, with Jackie now second at 12 points, followed by Nicola Morris third with 10 points. Sophia Morris is leading the juniors with 9 points, with our other junior Zoe Nuttal with 2 points.

Join us on a few rides ... as they say, winter miles equals summer smiles and with the Start of Summertime rides on 25 March there is something to work towards! See you soon.

Our Rides

These notes were discussed at length at the recent rides meeting. This will give you an idea of what our rides are intended to be and and how we expect riders to behave while riding with us.

If you are not sure of the speed/distance of a ride please give the leader a call.

All rides to leave 10 minutes after the scheduled meeting time.

Saturday Starter

These rides have always been planned to be gentle rides that are suitable for non-regular cyclists, families and children.

  • Allow 40 minutes for the café break

  • Preferred distance 10 – 15 miles

  • Regular re-groups to be included in the ride.

  • 8-10 mph average



Wednesday Evening

These evening rides have always been planned to be easy rides that are suitable for occasional and returning cyclists, teenage children as well as regular cyclists.

  • Allow 30 minutes for a stop at a pub or similar.

  • Preferred distance 17 – 18 miles.

  • Occasional re-groups to be included in the ride. Usually on hill tops!

  • 10mph average (excluding winter rides)

  • Aim to be back at 10pm



Friday Evening

The Friday evening rides developed as a logical development of the Wednesday rides. They are longer, up to 30 miles.

  • Allow 30 minutes for a stop at a pub or similar.

  • Preferred distance 20 – 28 miles.

  • Occasional re-groups to be included in the ride as required.

  • 12mph average (excluding winter rides)

  • Aim to be back before 10:30pm




Riders:

  • Please don’t ride in front of the leader or try to push the speed of the ride up. Our leaders are volunteers – help them to enjoy their ride too!

  • On hills – riding at your own pace is fine – but please find a safe space to regroup at the top – do not ride to the next junction to wait – this is unfair on those that may be struggling at the back

  • Do not ride more than 2 abreast

  • Please pass messages up or down the line eg Car front, Car back, pothole etc

  • Please follow the instruction of ride leader or sweeper.

  • If you notice a gap forming behind you please pass a message to the front to slow down. In the dark people who don’t know their way panic if they cannot see a rider in front of them



If riders persist in ‘bad behaviour’ they will be asked to leave the ride and ultimately be banned from all rides.
