The Club currently has about 300 members of whom approximately 160 members meet every Wednesday for nine categories of group rides.
Ride groupings are based on average speed and distance. Within any one grouping there may be several ride groups on any particular day (or even none), depending on numbers of riders and available leaders. It is aimed to limit the group size to 10.
There are 5 speed groupings in each of two start times for Wednesday rides, with the earlier groups generally travelling further.
Ride groups on a Monday and Saturday will be arranged according to numbers and leaders present. Riders can anticipate leaders will ride at similar speeds to Wednesdays.
