Both rides are used as training rides for the racing contingent of the club, that’s not to say the rides are not open to all however it is worth mentioning that at times the pace will be high and the uphill’s are usually taken at speed with some recovery and regrouping at the top. These rides are ideal for those who can maintain a decent pace but want to get quicker, you will be tested and you will be pushed and you will have fun!
There is also the usual club ride every Saturday at 9.00am, moderate pace, no one left behind.
