Do I need to be a member to come on a club run?
No, you can come along on a club run first to see if you like it before joining.
Am I fit enough?
Average speeds for a Sunday run tend to be 15-17mph. We will regroup at the top of hills and nobody will be left behind.
The Club also runs a development ride, which is a more gentle pace and where you can develop group riding skills and learn the etiquette of cycling in a bunch. This is a good place to start if you are new to club riding and no one will be left behind.
Chaingangs tend to be faster, and riders may be dropped.
What do I need to bring?
You’ll need a road bike in good, working condition and a helmet.
Whilst we all look out for each other, club runs encourage self sufficiency. From our experience here are some things you could bring with you each ride:
-In case of a mechanical you could bring: Inner tube x 2, pump, levers, chain tool – this should ensure you can get home!
-In case of an emergency you could bring: Packable foil blanket, mars bar, charged mobile phone.
-To keep you moving you could bring: a bar/gel/cake/piece, 2 bottles with water or juice, an emergency gel is handy for those days when you lose your legs!
