Social Rides?


11:31 Tue, 19 Jun 2018

Didn't there used to be regular social rides? Lily was interested.

There tends to be one most Sunday's now rather than first Sunday of the month like back in the day. Tend to be quite short/easy rides these days too, best suited to slower/newer riders.

I just hadn't noticed any on calendar

I will post one for this Sunday.

As Paul says there have been almost three a month now.
see past rides

I have posted at least the last two, usually mid week to give people plenty of notice. They have varied in length and been fairly well attended. It is hoped to post rides of varying distances etc most Sundays.

Paul. Whilst these rides certainly are not extreme in any way, I wonder whether those people who attend them would recognise/ agree with your description of the rides?

Average speed?


18:16 Tue, 19 Jun 2018

As detailed in each posting, the average speed is between 14 and 16 mph, but is varied to suit the slowest rider to ensure the social aspect is maintained. This has been a long standing protocol.

"I wonder whether those people who attend them would recognise/ agree with your description of them??"

Thought you were alluding otherwise

We go to the slowest rider. Agreed at on the day depending on who turns up.
So average speed can vary.

This simple principle ensures that it is a social pace.

Therefore Paul's comment is valid when you judge it against normal harder club rides.
However I have seen that the slowest rider was me on a recent ride and we did 35 miles with an average 19.5mph.

I personally do these rides to ensure that there is always an entry level ride available for members or potential members.

Overall most of the rides average out at 14-16 mph

My stats for yesterday were 45.75 miles at 15.6 mph average, but that's including a chase to the Staunton Harold cafe from The Warren due to one of the guys having 2 punctures.
