Tuesday Rides

Every Tuesday evening the club runs rides of varying paces to cater for different riders, we currently operate the following rides:

Summer Timetable
  • Social Ride
  • Intermediate & Fast(ish) Chain Gangs

Each ride will have a ride leader, who will determine the route and pace. The rides usually leave from Cliff Park Junior School, although you can also join the Chain Gang in Ashby, with details this week’s rides listed below.

When you first ride in a group you may be slightly unsure as to what is going on; where you should be riding in the formation or who is in charge etc. There are a few basic rules for riding in a group safely and effectively. There is also some basic ‘etiquette’ that you need to know (see Club Riding Etiquette and Rules), just so you don’t upset other riders or more importantly other road users.

Start Time!

Exact start times will be notified the day before on our Facebook page.

Social
Ride


The Traditional “Clubrun”, the idea of this ride is to get like minded cyclist’s out enjoying our local countryside. Open to all riders of the club whether they are complete novices wishing to learn new skills or those more experienced members wishing to pass on their skills to the new members of the Group (It can also be used as a “recovery” ride). The natural progression from the improvers rides.

Intermediate
Chain Gang


This is aimed at the Intermediate Riders and is riding in a “pace line” or “chain gang” that is a constantly rotating group (like a chain) a short and frantic ride that is fantastic fun!

Riding fast in a group like this is surprisingly easy!

Beginners to this type of riding are encouraged to come along and try a lap or two the first week or two until they are used to it and able to complete the whole ride.

Fast(ish)
Chain Gang


This is aimed at the Fast(ish) Riders and is riding in a “pace line” or “chain gang” that is a constantly rotating group (like a chain) a short and frantic ride that is fantastic fun!
