The Social group will aim for an average speed around 13-15 mph average, as with all rides distances and routes are planned in advance.
The Steady and Brisk groups will aim at around 15-18 mph average, with Steady at the lower end of the range and Brisk at the higher end, covering 50-60 miles with a tea stop at 11am. Mudguards in the winter are strongly encouraged. Destinations are published in advance on the email list/Facebook group
The Fast group aims for an average speed of 18-21 mph, covering 50-70 miles with a tea stop at 11am. Arthur Satterley once wrote: “The fast group is fun, exhilarating, social and at times tough; if you are committed to making it with us, we welcome anyone. However, as with any run, you need to be able (or satisfied) to ride at 18-21mph average and be sensitive to those who might be cooked. But we can’t guarantee what is going to happen and we won’t rule the run like dictators.” Destinations are decided by the participants on the day.
As the weather gets warmer we see the rise of the 8am and “epic” club run, these are planned & advertised in advance and often see rides in excess of 100 miles including the odd 200 mile ride – All this for £15 membership a year!
If you’d like to devise a route and lead a group one Sunday, please get in touch with the Clubruns Secretary listed on the committee page, we look forward to seeing you on the road soon!
