Club runs are starting up again with the first one taking place this coming Sunday, September 24th. Meet outside the Puma Centre, Gosling Sports Park for a 9.30am start. Riders should be dressed for the weather (look at the forecast!) and be suitable equipped for a long ride – waterproof, pump, inner tube(s), tyre levers plus drink & food. A usable mobile phone (i.e. charged with credit!), money and a multi-tool would also be useful.
The number of groups will be dependent upon numbers and fitness levels. There should be sufficient ride leaders to have at least two groups if appropriate. Ride length will be dependent upon who turns up but as a guide younger/slower riders would ride for about two hours with the faster group riding for around three.
Minimum age for these rides would be U14 youth – if any riders younger than that wish to ride they would need to be accompanied by a parent or designated person (have a chat with one of the coaches if you’re not sure).
There will be no cafe stop but it would be good to have a post-ride coffee etc in the Gosling bistro for a de-brief.
Club runs are a good social activity for club members but also have beneficial training effects. What are they? Answers to firstname.lastname@example.org…you never know you could win a prize!
