Sunday Club Rides at Chelmer CC

 

A Group - usually led by Antony Stapleton

The A group rides are referred to as the Endurance ride. These are generally 80+ miles with some topping out at 130 miles.  Generally go north or east and always with a coffee stop. 

Be prepared with at least a couple of spare inner tubes and always carry lights as they often return as night falls.  The rides often start at 0830, but do check facebook each week to get the confirmed start time. These rides are usually 17-18mph average.


B Group - Different Ride leaders each week

The B group has different ride leaders each week. The ride leader will be advertised on facebook along with the destination. These rides are usually 50-65 miles in length and do always have a coffee stop at the half way point.

The rides start at 0900 from the club HQ. These rides are approx 16-17 mph average.


C Group - Ride Leader Jeff

The C group ride always leaves the club on a sunday at 0900. This ride is generally paced at 15mph but will never drop anyone. There is always a coffee stop at around the half way mark and the ride is approx 50 miles in length. 


Fast Group - ride leader tbd

Depending on numbers, there can often be a fast non-stopping group on a sunday. This is for riders who want to cover 50-60 miles with average speeds of 20+ mph.

These rides often get decided on the day as depends on who turns up. This ride would leave at 0900 from the HQ also.  

It will also be decided on the day whether the group will wait for punctures or if anyone is dropped, so everyone is aware pre ride start.


Cancelations - will always be done via Facebook and can be done on the day. This will happen if very icey, snowey or torrential rain. Safety is the most important element.
