Weekend rides 6/7 October

Deep in the Cotswolds….

We’ve had to take the decision to cancel Saturday’s rides due to the torrential rain that’s forecast but don’t despair because it’s going to improve for Sunday’s annual Autumn Reliability Ride.

The route is a familiar but picturesque 60 mile/100km ride on quiet roads circling around Banbury, taking in the delights of the Cotswolds with a few climbs thrown in for good measure.

Headquarters and ride starting point will be at Woodgreen Leisure Centre, Banbury, OH16 0HS. The HQ will be open from 0830. Please ensure that you arrive in plenty of time to sign on and pay.

Entry fee is a mere £2.

There will be 3 start times:

0900: Leisure Pace. For riders stating a time of 4 – 4 1/2 hours.
0915: Intermediate Pace: For riders stating a time of 3 ½ – 4 hours.
0930: Fast Pace: For riders stating a time of 3 ½ hours or less.

Maps, directions and banter will be available at the headquarters. A much sought after and highly revered certificate will be awarded to any riders who manage to stay on course and complete the route in their stated time.

A reminder to all taking part:

Please ensure you have sufficient food, drink and basic bike maintenance tools, and appropriate clothing with you during this ride. There are no marshals or support on the route and it’s the responsibility of each rider to ensure their own well being.

The event is open to all cyclists, club members and non-club members alike, so please feel free to come along and invite any of your cycling friends.
