We will have a ride every week (during British Summer Time only) in the following format:
A Green (Social) ride - max 25-30mi, max 1500ft with an average speed of 12-14mph
A Blue (Challenging) ride - max 30-40mi, max 2000ft with an average speed of 14-16mph
A Red (Challenging) ride - max 30-40mi, max 2500 ft with an average speed of 16+mph
A Black (Very Challenging) ride - no maxiumum distance, elevation or speed
The speed on these rides may vary slightly to cater for the different needs of the group on the day and the terrain in which the ride will take. All rides are no drop so no-one will be left behind. Green group will ride as a pack but the other groups can ride ahead and wait for the rest as required (for example when riding up a hill).
Meeting points will be:
Rickerby Park - CA3
Richard Rose (Morton) - CA2 6LB
Carlisle Racecourse - CA2 4TS
Rosehill (ATS) - CA1 2RW
The route, meeting place and level will be available on our calendar (for club members) or by speaking to our Welfare Officer for non-members. Starting times will differ depending on daylight hours but are normally between 1800 and 1830.
The mid-week rides will predominantly be on a Wednesday, however, this may change week on week to accomodate inclement weather. Please check which day the ride will be on if you are signing up for a Try Ride.
We will have a monthly ride on the last weekend of every month (open to Club members only) in the following format:
Social ride - max 50mi, no more than 3000ft, no max speed
Challenging ride - 51+mi, no max elevation or speed
The route, meeting place and level will be posted on our closed Facebook page and will also be available on our calendar for club members. A guide can be downloaded from our Facebook page on how to use our calendar or by emailing our Club Secretary on firstname.lastname@example.org
