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 tyres with a reasonable tread – no racing wheels
Any changes and more precise details of start locations are sent out in the Weekly Newsletter.
FOLLOWING THE SUCCESS OF THE OPENING RIDES, WE ARE NOW GOING TO PROVIDE TWO RIDES EACH SATURDAY TRAVELLING ABOUT ONE HOUR APART. EACH RIDE WILL BE ABOUT 15 MILES BUT WITH NO COFFEE STOP ALTHOUGH WE WILL TAKE SHORT REST STOPS. THERE WILL BE A LIMIT OF 15 RIDERS ON EACH RIDE NORMAL RIDE FEES WILL APPLY.
