More Info on our rides…
We have our established Club Runs, all meet at SSC at 9.am. The A group is usually a non-stop brisk ride for experienced riders getting in some quality base training miles; the B group is a more social and steady ride that explores the lanes and countryside of Worcestershire and neighbouring counties, with an obligatory café stop around mid way, distance typically around 50mls. Members aged from mid teens to late 60’s frequent the Wyre Forest club runs and of course, in the B group no-one is left behind. While there are usually club members who are at SSC for the club run on a Sunday, the active club Faecbook page is also a good forum to see who is out.
From April to July we put on an evening Club time trial, currently using a mix of 3 different courses. Riders start at 1 minute intervals and are timed over the course, typically 10 miles to 14 miles, riding at their own pace. Members share marshalling duties during the year at these events and first man off is always at 7.01pm. This time trial series makes an annual club championship with trophies and prizes awarded at the end of the season for a variety of categories.
Youth & Junior coaching. Many younger riders both members and non members, attend these extremely popular, well established Go Ride sessions which are run on part of the new circuit by our qualified coaches between 7.00 and 8.00 during the summer months.
High quality British Cycling coaching on the Stourport Circuit runs from October to March. Free for WFCRC club members. Arrive at 18:45 for 19:00 start, runs to 21:00
