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.
Dear Members, Please see notes from the committee on Club rides.
From the committee.
As members will be well aware, England is currently subject to lockdown to try to halt the spread of Covid 19 . There do not appear to have been any exceptions made (as yet at least) for group sports, and the rule is that you can only meet one other person outside for recreation. Unfortunately the committee has therefore had to make the decision to suspend club group rides, and this will need to remain in place until further notice. As you can meet one other person outside it would appear that riding in twos will still be permitted. The Government guidance advises to stay Local. British Cycling have indicated that they are making urgent enquiries of the government about what they count as “local” for road cycling. The committee really regrets having to suspend group riding again in the club and shares what many members must be feeling, that we can’t wait for this to be all over.
