Thursday Evening Road Rides
August 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The return of the popular Thursday evening road rides which started last year.
There are 3 rides leaving the club and all are paced.
A Ride departs 19:00 Pace around 20-22 mph suitable for riders who race or are planning to race during the season. There are ample opportunities for PR’s and KOM/QOM’s on this ride.
B+ Ride departs 18:55 Pace 17-19mph. This follows the same route as the A ride as far as Belbroughton where it splits off and returns to the club. This ride is suitable for those developing their skills and improving pace in a group.
B Ride departs 19:00. Pace 14-16 mph. This ride is suitable for those learning to ride in a group on the road. Emphasis is on developing the group riding before speed. There is a sprint test on the route.
These rides are primarily for experienced riders who are confident riding safely on public roads. There will be ride leaders but the responsibility for rider safety rests with the individual.
Riders are expected to participate on roadworthy cycles with helmets and lights where necessary.
Younger riders will be supervised at all times.
There is an additional session planned using the track which allows riders to build speed and confidence before attempting these road rides. Details to follow.
This rides are a collaboration between WFCRC, Success Cycling and Overspoke Bikes. Thanks to Jamie Jenkins and Mark Young for supporting the event.
There maybe weeks when weather forces cancellation of the rides. We will do our best to inform you in plenty of time should this occur.
If you have any questions please post in the event.
