The Saturday Social ride is aimed at people who have never ridden in a group or would like more group riding experience without the added worry of being left behind. Its aim is to teach you the basics of group riding and the benefits especially if your aiming for a charity ride or sportive etc…
Many people feel they just are not ready to ride with a cycle club and if that is you then this ride if for you. It is led by members of the Great Yarmouth cycling club. The Distance is not too far and the riders will all be going at the slowest paced rider. We often establish this on route near the start but it’s usually around 12 – 13 mph. During the ride you can learn techniques for cycling longer distances and bike maintenance etc.. anything you want to learn about the sport or bike and General social Chatting. Sometimes depending on time there maybe a brief coffee stop but there is always a mini break within the ride to let you relax and take in the ride you are doing.
During the spring/Summer months the rides will slightly extend, this helps towards moving up to the club runs or if you need a longer distance, But we always offer the smaller rides if anyone wants to do them.
Hope to see you there.
