Weekend rides 15/16 June

This weekend we have five rides planned.

Saturday 10am Gentle Cafe Ride: The 12-14mph average speed Gentle Cafe Ride is going out to Sugarswell and features a coffee stop at Monkeybean Coffee Shop as part of a 28.2 mile loop.

Saturday 10am Intermediate Ride: The same coffee stop at Monkeybean Coffee Shop, but a faster average of 15-16mph over a longer route of 33.2 miles.

Sunday Long Intermediate and Fast Rides 9am: The long intermediate and fast rides is going out west to Broadway Tower taking in Dover’s and Fish hills. You can expect an average for the former of 16-17mph and the latter 17-18mph over the 63.3 miles, if all agree the pace may be even higher. Neither of these rides will be stopping for coffee.

WARNING this a longer and lumpier route than usual
Bring legs, food etc. Also, please could I remind people to put the route on your Garmin’s and regroup (wait for me) at the top of climbs.

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 close to town.

BSCC032b – Charlton backup route b

Sunday 10am Intermediate Ride: The second Sunday intermediate is going to Epwell with a coffee stop at The Chandlers Arms. Expect 16mph average speed over the 35.1 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.
