Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 22nd January 2020

Last week the cycling Gods granted us good weather for the Wednesday ride. This week, following the sacrifice of a number of small animals, it looks like they’re smiling on us again.

Dry, 8 degrees and just 7 mph of wind - January riding seldom gets better.
Last weeks flat route tempted people out, so I thought I’d try the same trick this week with a figure of eight Yatton route.

A 19:00 start again this week to give people time to get home and miss the commute traffic.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 15th January 2020

Wednesday evening is currently looking relatively warm, dry and not too windy. So I thought we’d try this easy peddling route ( which should avoided too much crap and standing water ) and see who we can tempt out.

A 19:00 start once more to miss the tail end of the commute traffic and give everyone time to get sorted. See you outside Priory School.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 8th January 2020

Shipham hill is the main feature of this weeks ride. Good news is the current forecast says nice and warm with a gentle breeze (……but maybe bring along a rain jacket - Rule 5 applies )

See you outside Priory School at 19:00

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 18th December 2019

There was a decent turn out  for last weeks easy route and 19:00 start. So we thought try the same formula again this week. It’s the last Wednesday Ride of the year, so why not come along and keep your legs turning on the run up to Christmas.

See you outside Priory School at 7pm.

Saturday Club Ride: 14th December 2019

It's fair to say the forecast is rather blowy for Saturday, with gusts well over 40mph according to the met office. But if you don’t mind getting shoved around a bit, a couple of hours on a wild day can be fun! ……..No really!
See you 08:30 outside Priory School if you fancy it.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 11th December 2019

Last week we headed for the hills, so this week ( in the hope of tempting out any less confident night riders or those who haven't been out for a while ) we're keeping it flat and simple.
Once again it's a later 19:00 start to give people time to get back from work, and miss the tail end of the commute traffic.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 4th December 2019

Once again this week we're trialling a later winter start time of 19:00

The forecast is bone dry with next to no wind for Wednesday night. So why not dig out those lights, put on an extra layer, and join us for a bracing ride over the top? You know you want to!

A later start this week, 19:00 outside priory rather than the usual 18:00.

So, with plenty of time to get back from work and sort your cycling stuff out, why not give the turbo a rest and join us on this easy pedalling pancake route?

Wednesday Club Ride: 23rd October 2019

The forecast looks pretty good for Wednesday ( dry, not too chilly and next to no wind ). So why not dig out those lights and treat yourself to a mid-week ride?  

A steady climb up over the Mendips via Shipham and Longbottom, followed by a drop down to Blagdon Lake via Two Trees.

See you outside Priory School at 18:00.
