It has been pointed out by several riders that the rides are getting a bit long. This has happened mainly because all riders are getting stronger and faster. It is our intention over the next few weeks to limit the distances of the rides to a max of 65 miles. We will possibly have a longer ride once a month. This is not applicable to the Fast group 1.
There are only 2 designated rides leaving Maindy this week owing to several ride leaders being away. However, there are likely to be more rides available depending on who turns up.
Graeme Boswell will lead the Fast group 1 from Maindy- Abercynon- Aberdare- Glynneath- Resolven- Neath- Britton Ferry- Pyle- Ewenny(cafe)- A48 back to Maindy. 85 miles mainly rolling with 1 lump.
Rhys Williams will lead the Slower Middle group 3 from Maindy- Abercynon- Nelson- Bedlinog- Fochriw- New Tredegar- Aberbargoed- Cwmcarn(cafe)- Rogerstone- Bassaleg- Rudry- Maindy. 60 miles with a few lumps.
This week sees the Bernardos ride and several Ajax riders have entered. If you don`t fancy the club rides then you can enter the Bernados by going to the Copthorne Hotel, Culverhouse Cross between 7 and 8am on Sunday and enter at reception. The cost is £10 which goes to a worthy charity, and it`s a 40 mile loop around the Vale. I`m sure someone will post the time they would like to leave the hotel and you could all ride as a group and get some publicity for the club.
Good luck to everyone riding to Manorbie and back over the weekend and whichever ride you choose enjoy it!!
