Weekend Rides 3/4 April

Has anyone mentioned how excited we are!!! WE ARE BACK RIDING OUTDOORS!!!

We are straight back to our usual 5 rides over the weekend, but unfortunately not able to arrange stops currently. The cafe routes do have suitable locations enroute for takeaway stops should the groups decided they need it. We have also picked nice gentle routes for our first ride back.

And an added bonus, as the clocks have changed again, the mandatory mudguard rule has been put back to sleep until the Autumn, although it’s still very courteous if it’s particularly wet to still use them.

Please remember you need to register at least 24 hours before the ride. Registration can be done here; Pre Registration Link

All rides are subject to the updated Covid-19 Ride Protocols and can be found here; Ride Protocols

As we will meet in Peoples’ Park, please ensure you do not cycle in the park and be respectful of other users of the park.

Please locate your nominated Ride Leader and do not congregate with riders outside your allocated group. Although Government rules allow for up to 15, we will retain our 6 rider limit

You must not take part in any club ride if you feel unwell, have any Covid-19 symptoms or suspect that you may have been exposed to someone who has, or if you live or work with someone who has started self-isolating in the last 14 days. This is the primary means of not infecting other riders or volunteers and must be adhered to.

Saturday Gentle Cafe Ride 10am: With the GCR you can expect an average of 12-14mph. Heading out to Adderbury and heading back towards Edgehill via Bloxham; obviously!

Saturday Intermediate Cafe Ride 10am: Similar initial route to the GCR but with a slightly higher average pace around 15-16mph and a slightly different final section making it a longer route

Sunday Long Intermediate and Fast Rides 9am: The long intermediate and fast rides head out to Farthingstone. You can expect an average for the former of 16-17mph and the latter 17-18mph, if all agree the pace may be even higher. Neither of these rides will be stopping for coffee.

Sunday 10am Intermediate Ride: The Sunday intermediate is going to Brackley. There is no planned stop, but options in Brackley centre. Expect 16mph average speed.

All rides meet at Peoples’ Park 15 minutes before the departure time. It’s important you pick a ride that’s commensurate with your ability levels.
