As you may or may not be aware, after the club survey it was decided to re-launch the club runs using the feedback received in the survey. The first of these new runs will take place on Sunday 9th March. The new format will consist of:
- Meeting point is Siempre Bicycle Cafe on Dumbarton Road. Meet at 09:15 for a 09:30 depart, or slightly earlier to have a chat and maybe a coffee before we get going!
- 2 groups, one doing a longer and harder run, and the other more sociable.
- Both will have a cafe stop, bring on the cakes!
- There will be a designated ride leader for each group, who is in charge of the route and generally there to be a focal point for any new riders
The 'A' group rides will usually be between 80-100 km/50-65 miles with the odd day a little longer. Average speeds are likely to be 27-29 kph/17-18 mph. There will be re-grouping at the tops of major climbs.
The 'B' group rides will be shorter and slower, usually between 50-70 km/30-45 miles and the average speeds will be around 24 kph/15 mph. These will be slower if needed as this is a no drop ride!
