Saturday 13/07/19 Club Ride

Post by Adrian Snell » Wed Jul 10, 2019 10:12 pm

**Please note the change of start**

Generally at least two social rides to local cafes for lunch, depending on who turns out on the day:

• A slower (C2) group of around 35 miles at an average speed of 13-14 mph. **Simon has a new cafe (Miners Lamp) for this ride, so looking forward to the reviews.

• A faster group (C4) of around 40 miles at an average speed of 15-17 mph.

We have a faster (C5) 16-18 mph of around 45 miles available this Saturday.

Possibly other groups/speeds subject to numbers

In all cases no rider is ever dropped, left behind or pushed beyond their limits.

Most destinations decided on the day
Starts from Samms cafe, Ponteland
Leave at 10.00.

If unsure of anything on the day please ask for Richard Knight for guidance.

We look forward to seeing you.

I have spoken to Samms and made them aware. Please be patient with them as they again get used to our presence.. We also need to be again mindful of avoiding riding on the pavement/area outside the shops and being courteous to others using the area (ie being careful where bikes are left if using the cafe etc).

Another great turn out from Sam’s our new start point this morning, despite the weather, so good effort everyone.

3 rides today

Simon lead 7 on the C2, 31 miles at 13mph average to a new cafe called the Miners Lamp West Wylam.

Andy lead 8 on the C4, 40ish miles at 16mph average to the Hearth

Gary lead 6 on the C5, 42 miles at 18.4mph average (I understand the group was comfortable with this) also to the Hearth.

A huge thanks to everyone and look forward to more like it, the rides will happen every Saturday so please come along it’ll be great to see you.
