The club runs a social cycle ride once a month, usually on the first Sunday of the month. The ride will typically be split into three groups (fast 18-20 mph, medium 14-16 mph and social around 10-12 mph however no-one is left behind). This is a non-coached session: each group is led by a volunteer ride leader. The aim is a social ride, to allow members to mix and chat. It also provides the opportunity to explore different areas with someone who knows the locality. The meeting location is usually The Village Hotel, Canley at 8:30am prompt. We finish at the same location with everyone meeting for a coffee, cake and a chat. We will post the ride details a few days beforehand on the club Facebook group.
- As this is a led session, not a coached session, participation is at everyone’s own risk. If you have a medical condition requiring medication (such as asthma or allergies), please ensure you bring your medication with you.
- If you have to leave the ride early for any reason, please let the ride leader know before you leave.
- Cycle helmets are compulsory for the social ride, and front and rear bike lights are strongly recommended.
- Please ensure you bring appropriate clothing and nutrition for the weather conditions, that you have sufficient bike spares and tools and that your bike is in a roadworthy condition, including your tyres being in good condition and correctly inflated.
