Weekend 15/16th February 2020

With the weather warnings currently in place, there are currently no club rides planned this weekend.

If any club members are intending to go out and would like to propose a route for posting, please contact the Secretary.

If the situation changes/improves, a route may be posted nearer the weekend.

Wednesday Evening Ride: 12th February 2020

Looks like this Wednesday will be the calm between two storms. So, why not take advantage of this window of opportunity, and join us for a midweek ride.

This week’s route is an old club favourite, the “Rob Special”. It’s pretty flat, but you can make it flatter still by dodging the Brent Knoll climb ( carry on around the knoll and meet the ride coming back ) and the toll road.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 5th February 2020

Once again conditions are looking pretty good for the Wednesday ride. Dry and virtually windless, say the Beeb. Add in a couple of good drying days before hand, and you've got yourself all the ingredients for a nice ride around. So, why not get those lights on charge and treat yourself to a midweek ride.

Start time 18:00 outside Priory School

Although the weather forecast is looking dodgy; high winds and potential rain, here is a possible route for this Saturday morning's ride.

I've included a detour to avoid the roadworks by the golf course.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 29th January 2020

The weather’s looking decent for Wednesday evening once again. “Low cloud with a gentle breeze” and only a “low chance of precipitation” according to the BBC. It's another “easy pedalling” route this week, to see January out.

****Start time this week, by popular request, is back to 18:00 - see you outside Priory School*****

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.
