The club currently has three organised group rides that are held on Sunday mornings.
Club Runs from Helpston
Two rides start out from Helpston on Sunday mornings. Both groups meet up at 9 am opposite the Post Office.
Ian Todd usually leads one of these rides. These are longer rides, typically between 45 to 70 miles, and include a refreshment stop. The typical pace is around 16 mph.
The second ride is usually led by Birgit Scott. Birgit's rides are slightly shorter (30-40 miles) with a coffee stop along the route. The pace is around 12-13 mph.
Fast Training Rides from Orton
Simon Pitchford organises these rides that meet up at the Starbucks in Orton Centre at 8.30 am for coffee and a chat before heading out. The actual rides start at 9 am. The aim of these rides is to work together as an organised group on the road. There are no stops. The typical distance is around 45 miles. The pace is 19-20 mph.
Details of all the week's rides (including a "Ride with GPS" map of the route) and any other organised rides, are circulated in advance by email to all members of the club.
