The club rides are primarily social rides leaving Maindy stadium at 9.30am.
Each week, usually on a Thursday morning, Sunday rides with pre-determined routes will be published. (these can obviously be changed should the weather dictate on the day).
Each Sunday there will be a standard Club Route which will accommodate a faster (fast) group and a slightly slower (intermediate) group following the same route with a designated coffee stop. There will be also be a shorter route every Sunday which will be no more that 50 miles with a designated coffee shop.
Each Group on the Standard Route should accommodate up to 16 riders, but if numbers grow (especially with the summer months approaching) we will split the groups before leaving Maindy and run 3 groups on a similar basis.
The new format will allow riders to step up when they feel comfortable safe in the knowledge that there is a group to sweep them up if they need to drop back.
There will be no designated ride leaders for these groups as there will be plenty of experience within each group to ensure everyone works together and looks after each other.
Each Route will be posted on the website and on Face book (along with an Invitation to join which should allow for an idea of attending numbers during the week).
It is important that any rider taking part has their current membership card in case of emergency, reviews and understands the route, ensures their bike is in good working order and that they have enough food/drink and spares.
Beginners Rides will continue on the first Sunday of each month.
