Sunday Club Run
Starting from Appledore Bridge at 9am every Sunday morning throughout the year. The routes are decided on the day based on weather conditions and the riders present.
Black group, pace can be between 18 and 22mph but this can be moderated on the day to ensure nobody is dropped or left behind on the way out. On the way back the pace may increase and the group may agree to split up into small groups if the ability levels are too disparate though nobody is left behind.
Red group – speed to be agreed on the day – with the emphasis is on inclusivity. Usual start time so we can have a natter but perhaps head of westwards. We can still throw in a couple of lumpy bits.
White group – if numbers allow and riders want an easy paced social ride, an ideal ease in to Club Rides for newer riders..
Message from the Chair.
In light of general easing of restrictions the Committee has now reconsidered our position in relation to our scheduled Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday club rides. We have concluded that rides can resume on the understanding that current guidance on group numbers and social distancing is observed at all times. This means groups must have a maximum of six riders and maintain a social distance of at least one metre. When more than six riders arrive in Rye or Appledore we trust the good sense of members to organise separate groups and different venues so not to transgress the guidelines at cafe stops. Clearly it would be helpful if regular riders on each day use WhatsApp to give prior thought to groups and routes.
