Once again the club will be offering the popular monthly awayday rides which encourage members to explore further afield. We now have several options covering a range of abilities and preferences. These take place once a month on Wednesdays and Sundays with more options being trialled.

A full set of dates can be found here.

Ride Planning. Last year we had some great rides planned by club members and we are looking for people to offer to plan and lead a ride on one of the above dates (March has already been taken). You can plan your own ride or choose one from previous rides recorded on the away day archive. We have now done at least 35 rides and some routes are worth repeating.

Group Leaders. If you don’t fancy planning a ride but want to help then leading a group is the next best thing! We had quite a few people offering to lead a group last year and it seemed to work well (at least no one said otherwise!).

You need to have a GPS unit or good map knowledge to download the route and be comfortable leading a group. As group leader you are guaranteed a place on the ride. Things generally work out well but you need to be prepared to make decisions if not. It’s not too difficult a task as everyone helps out.

If you want to join a ride or fancy being a ride leader contact Kevin at
