Thursday Club Ride (2 Groups)
January 7, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
A Group Ride: Leaves Croston Sports Club at 18:30 every Thursday evening. During the winter months the route will usually be between 25-30 miles and relatively flat to allow a good winter group ride.
Throughout winter this ride will average between 18-20 mph, although this ride does not intentionally drop people, riders are expected to be self-sufficient and know the route home. Please note the usual Thursday chain gang will not take place during the dark nights for rider safety.
Over winter we intend to ride the same route every Thursday for one calendar month to enable riders to become familiar with the route and road conditions.
The route for the Thursday night ride throughout January has been kept deliberately show due to possible adverse weather, if weather is good the group may decide to extend up Ulnes Walton Lane and North Road, the can be found at https://www.strava.com/routes/3415396.
C Group Ride: Also leaves Croston Sports Club at 18:30 every Thursday evening. The route will usually be between 20-30 miles depending on weather conditions. These rides will often be flat although some smaller hills may be included and ridden at a steady pace re-grouping at the top. This ride will usually average between 12-15mph and operates a no-drop policy. Routes are decided on arrival depending on weather conditions and rider ability. This ride is ideal if you are new to group riding and want to meet fellow like-minded cyclists keen to improve.
Both rides end with a social event at Croston Sports Club where they serve us home cooked food and we enjoy a few recover ales! Worth coming along if only for that…..
