The Ajax hill climb championship takes place next Sunday 4th October. The course runs from just north of Castle Coch to the entrance to Mountain View Ranch (see Strava segment below – you don’t need to be on Strava to view the segment).
Aaron Wagg has kindly agreed for us to use The Mountain View Ranch as HQ for the event. Sign on will be from 8:30 until approximately 9:10 with the first rider off at 9:30.
It’s £3 to enter. Under 18s need a completed parental consent form (see link below) unless you’ve already given me one for the club evening TT series (I know who you are!) and have to wear a helmet that meets the standard safety requirements.
Club runs will be leaving the Mountain View Ranch afterwards so you have no excuse not to help out or, even better, ride!Read More
We’ll set off from Maindy at 9:30am. Please arrive a little earlier to sign on.
As usual, we’ll ride at the pace of the slowest and cover a distance of around 25 miles. Coffee, cake, chat guaranteed! ( Can’t promise sun!)
All welcome (including non members)
See you Saturday!Read More
Saturday 15th August is the third Saturday of the month so it’s time for the lovely ladies ride again!

See you Saturday!Read More
This Sunday all rides will head to Cowbridge to support the Teams racing in the L’Etape Defonse. The Stage starts at 9.30 and so we need to get the rides to the bridge/garage at the top of Primrose Hill for 11.15/11.30.
Maindy, Taffs Well, Pontypridd, Tonteg, Llantrisant, Llanharan, Pencoed, Coychurch, Ewenny, St Brides Major, Wick, Llantwit Major, Llandow, Cowbridge.(if there are delays then cut through Corntown straight back to Cowbridge).
Route will be the same to Pencoed, but then there will be a cut out via Felindre Road pass St Mary Golf Club to Pentre Meyrick and then on to Cowbridge.
Those who wish to take a steady ride out to support the teams could take a more direct route to Cowbridge via the lanes.
There is no prescribed route back, but likely to be back along the A48 and the turn left through Gwern Y Steeple, Peterstone Super Ely.
As all rides will likely be back earlier than normal, there could also be time for a pint when we get back.
All ability ladies ride – leaving Maindy at 9:30.
As usual, you’ll need a roadworthy bike, a helmet, drinks, snacks, spares, tools…and suncream (here’s hoping!).
Non members welcome. Please arrive in time to sign on.
This month, we’r hoping there’ll be an option of a longer ride, up to 50 miles, but the all ability ride will be around the 20 mile mark as usual. We’ll all ride out together and split later if there are enough numbers for 2 rides.Read More
