Wednesday night ride

Midweek Ride

Provided his bike and him survive the Lakes trip, Richard Ford will be leading this weeks ride.

The ride will be a novice friendly 12 mile loop from Barbury Castle car park.  The pace will be steady.  While there will be some hills we will wait and allow everyone to have a breather.

Lighter nights means that we will probably complete the ride before dark.  A set of lights is probably sensible in case we get a lot of punctures and needed if you ride to the start.

Hope to see you there!

    Our rule of thumb is to allow folks to attend a couple of rides before asking them to join. So yes you can. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it and think attending more rides is worth a tenner for the year.

    I am leading so the ride will not be fast (I’m not).
