Weekend rides 24/25 Feb

There’s a slight change to some of this weekend’s club rides as the usual Saturday Gentle Cafe and Intermediate rides have been changed into a dedicated session that’s aimed at improving group riding skills. Overnight temperatures are forecast to be on the low side so please check the club’s Facebook group for any last minute changes.

Saturday 10am: Group riding skills: Meet at Broadribb Cycles at 0945 for a 1000 departure where we will ride to Wroxton for a brief theoretical session and then continue to ride out to Epwell in small groups to put into place what we’ve learned. We will stop at the Chandlers Arms and then ride back, again in groups.

Saturday 10am: Mountain bike ride The meeting point for the club’s monthly MTB ride is the Giant Caves car park on the Banbury to Broughton B4035 road, just before the North Newington turn off. Steve Goddard will again be leading the ride which will be approx. 15-18 miles on some good local bridleways and tracks.

Sunday 9am Fast: A 64.5 mile route out to Bidford awaits those who are on the fast ride which will average 17-18mph.

Sunday 10am Intermediate: For the less-energetic, the Intermediate ride is one of 33.6 miles taking in coffee at The Moon and Sixpence. Expect an average of 15-16mph.
