Sunday Rides

Sunday rides will be mainly on road on quiet lanes .  The rides will alternate between a distance of about 30 miles and longer rides of 50 miles. There will be a lunch stop, probably pub lunch, wherever possible. Riding will be at the usual club pace and we hope this will offer an opportunity to go a bit further.

Please note the longer rides may sometimes be shorter than 50 miles but hillier than normal rides.  Anyone doing these rides should either have done previous 30 mile rides or be experienced in longer rides.
