Tuesday - Long C4 Rides - Any interest?

Post by Andy Berne » Fri Jan 04, 2019 10:43 pm

Is there any interest in a longer ride on a Tuesday from March to October time?

I'm happy to lead/organise some when available (probably most Tuesdays)

Outline idea
Meet at Samms, Ponteland. Depart 9.30am to aim to get back between 3pm and 4pm
Distance 55-80 miles.
Speed 15-16.5 mph subject to climbing, weather etc
Numbers groups of 4-8, if more than 8 then split into two or more groups. (slightly faster/slower groups)
Climbing - not intentionally hilly but there will obviously be some climbing. Regroup at top of long climbs if needed.
One stop for Lunch (Café/Pub/Shop) - 30 mins then back on bike
Occasionally start from some other location for a bit of variety

Any thoughts/interest?

Great idea Andy, put down for these.

Maybe do some starts in Hexham, Corbridge and other places so we can venture into different areas. A thought for later possibly.

I’d be interested in this. Often go out with another group but time constraints limit extent of rides, so this would be a welcome alternative. Usually free most Tuesdays.

Nice one Andy
Most likely not around March but If I'm around from April onwards I should be able to join in.
Happy to arrange and lead a ride too if necessary.
