Saturday Rides

Saturday rides provide easy rides of a little longer distance than the Wednesday evenings – suitable for members wishing to progress or for those who cannot make mid-week rides.   Covering distances usually between 15 and 20 miles, many will use traffic free paths and canals etc.  Most rides are suitable for mountain bikes, hybrids and road bikes with suitable tyres.  Members with pure road bikes with “skinny” tyres may find some of the rides a little difficult.

CERACYCLOAN/SCCC Easy Saturday Morning rides.

Running from March to October, Ceracycloan and SCCC will provide Saturday morning rides for novice riders, unfit riders  and those who feel then normal distances are too long.  Each Group will provide Leaders on alternate weeks except for Bank Holidays.

The rides will start at 10am with instruction on how to do a cycle check .  This will be followed by a ride of about an hour (distance probably not more than 6 miles) in the local area. All rides will be at the pace of the slowest with experienced leaders.  Cycles (including a small number of electric bikes) are available for loan (subject to depositing  an item of security ).  The morning will end with a cuppa and a chat – time to ask questions. The morning should end by noon.

In the event of inclement weather, a number of indoor activities will be available.  These may include instruction on cycle maintenance or time to fettle your own machine.

Our programme shows only those rides led by our leaders.

 

 

Any changes and more precise details of start locations are sent out in the Weekly Newsletter.
