Improvers Rides (Ride Category 2)
For the “Novice” or “Beginner” cyclist that have improved and are ready to begin travelling a little further afield and perhaps also upping the speed a little the natural progression from the beginner rides.
Ultimately decided by those in attendance but usually aims to travel at a speed of 12–15 mph to give an average speed of around 13-14mph no-one will get “dropped”.
Further than the beginners group rides usually upto 40-50 miles and sometimes further. Will usually involve a café/refreshment stop.
Sunday Mornings – but may also be organised on other days.
Pre-requisites for Ride
Whilst there is no minimum speed requirement, the ability to ride a bike for around 2-3hrs and feel they are competent to ride safely in a group situation is a good guide.A willingness to take and follow advice from the “ride leader” or other experienced riders in the group.Ride leaders and other members may recommend this ride to people as a step up from the beginners ride.
