- Sunday morning ride - the main club ride of the week. Distance generally between 50 and 60 miles, with varying hills and a variety of routes, dependent on weather. On average, the climbing will be approx. 1% of distance. So, a 100km route will, on average, have 1000m of climbing; which in comparison to some areas, e.g. Wales and Cornwall, is fairly tame. There is an expectation of participants being able to maintain an average of 15MPH. From time to time, we plan a longer ride, sometimes into Wales and/or starting in a different location.
- Wednesday evening ride - the standard of this ride is similar to the Sunday ride, but the distance is usually in the region of 30 miles. In late Autumn through to Spring, good lights will be needed as many of these rides will be in the dark and away from street lights.
- Saturday morning ride - this is intended to be a fairly easy ride. It is aimed at potential club joiners, members coming back from injury/illness, or anyone wanting a steady ride with company on a Saturday morning. It will be around 30 miles, but fairly flat and there is no expectation of any speed requirement. We will go at the pace of the slowest rider.
