February Reliability Rides

During February the club’s reliability rides will take place. The aim of the reliability rides is to test you and your bike after the festive season and before the cycling season begins. The dates of the rides and predicted routes are detailed below.

There will be more on the format closer to the time but rides leave Maindy as a normal Sunday ride splitting into groups based on ability. All rides leave at 09:30 hrs, with the exception of the 100 where slower and middle groups leave at 09:00 hrs.

It is essential that you carry adequate spares, clothing, food and money. We will always try and keep groups together, but you also need to be self sufficient.

Sunday 5th Feb. Hilly 50. Route is Maindy – Pentrych – Talbot Green – Trebanog Hill – Penrhys Hill – Maerdy – Aberdare – Mountain Ash – Glyntaff – Maindy.

Sunday 12th Feb. 75 miles in 6 hours. Route is Maindy – Glyntaff – Mountain Ash – Hirwaun – Penderyn – Merthyr – Treharris – Glyntaff – Maindy.
