UPDATE 0830 Sunday
Because of the overnight frost and the untreated roads on which today’s routes take us, we’ve made the decision to cancel today’s 0900 and 1000 rides.
This weekend we have five rides planned.
Saturday 10am Gentle Cafe Ride: The 12-14mph average speed Gentle Cafe Ride is going out to Clifton and features a coffee stop at The Duke, Clifton, £4pp, as part of a 26.3 mile loop.
Saturday 10am Intermediate Ride: The same coffee stop at The Duke, but a faster average of 15-16mph over a longer route of 32.1 miles.
Sunday Long Intermediate and Fast Rides 9am: The long intermediate and fast rides head west on a loop out to Epwell. You can expect an average for the former of 16-17mph and the latter 17-18mph over the 52.8 miles, if all agree the pace may be even higher. Neither of these rides will be stopping for coffee.
Please could anyone joining the Sunday Long Intermediate and Fast Rides check the route on your device. As the start point of the routes have been corrected and some of the routes have been tweaked.
If conditions or weather forecast are not good the Long Intermediate and Fast Rides may revert to the below routes as they stay close to town.

Sunday 10am Intermediate Ride: The second Sunday intermediate is going to Redwings with a coffee stop at Redwings Horse Sanctuary Cafe, nr Oxhill. Expect 16mph average speed over the 35.2 mile ride.
All rides meet at Broadribb cycles 15 minutes before the departure time. It’s important you pick a ride that’s commensurate with your ability levels.
