CLUB RIDES

Please read our club run etiquette before joining us  on our club rides, thank you

General Information about Club Rides

There are three club rides which go out regularly on Sundays - Pacers, Chasers and Amblers (Please read further down for details of each ride).  Sunday morning club rides start out from 'Physiques' in Brackla at 9am. Times may vary in winter, so please check the forum.  More often than not, there is a cafe stop to refuel.

 

Often there are weekday club rides arranged by members. The times differ, as do the distances and routes.  Please click here to see if there are any rides going out this week.

Amblers - Times can vary during the winter, please check forum

This ride will cater for those who are just starting out, recovering from illness or just lacking time to do the longer faster rides. The ride will be done as a group all starting and finishing together.

The amblers ride is at the pace of the slowest rider.  The emphasis is on socialising and no-one will be left behind on this ride and there will always be a cafe stop.

 

Rides will get progressively more difficult by July, some riders may wish to advance to the Chasers and beyond. The route will be posted on the forum in advance of the ride, but is subject to change, ie for the weather or standard of rider on the day.  Amblers rides will start at the same time as Chasers and Pacers from Physiques in the Brackla Triangle shopping centre. All are welcome including those who would like to join the club and have never ridden in a group and wish to take a look at what goes on in a club run.

Rides will generally be between 25 - 40 miles and the pace will be approx 13 - 15mph

Chasers / Pacers- Times can vary during the winter, please check forum

​​Depending on turn-out and enthusiasm levels, the groups may split into a slower fast (Chasers) and a fast fast (Pacers) group, but it's all informal and low pressure, and nobody is ever obliged to go faster or further than they want to.

Chasers - Rides will generally be between 45 - 60 miles and the pace will be approx 17mph

Pacers -   Rides will generally be between 50 - 70 miles and the pace will be approx  19mph

Mid week rides - Times can vary during the winter, please check forum

Mid week rides are arranged by members who are lucky enough to be free during the week.  As such, these rides are ad hoc, so please keep an eye on the forum for updates week by week
