There were two initial short awaydays in 2021, and 8 in 2022. However, due to limited numbers, only four dates are proposed for 2023.
These rides will be held on Sundays in order to appeal to as many riders as possible. In recent years, the programme of club awaydays, generally of medium length and pace, has been very well supported. The rides have usually started from locations around an hour from Harrogate and they have greatly increased the variety of rides on offer. However, for those who generally participate in short rides, there is unavoidable repetition and hence less variety, so the widening of the areas to be visited by short awayday rides does create new variety and interest.
If you want to join the short awayday rides, the dates are shown below and details of the routes will appear on the Calendar as usual. You can register for the ride using the email link on the calendar. Rides are on a first come first saved basis and will be limited to a group of 9 riders, including a leader. If there are more than this then we will try and find a second leader for a second group. If this is not possible we will start a waiting list. Those that have a place will be sent details of the location and meeting details. Obviously, you will need to arrange transport for you and your bike to the start. if this is difficult contact the the ride leader in case they may be able to assist.
