Thursday Club Ride (2 Groups)
June 4, 2015 @ 6:30 am - 8:30 pm
Advanced club ride: Leaves Croston Sports Club at 18:30 Thursday evening. The route will usually be between 30 – 45 miles, although often flat to allow a good group ride there may be evenings where the route is undulating and riders are expected to be comfortable on either terrain. The average speed will be 18mph+, although there is no intention to drop riders it is expected that you should be able to keep up with the group. Riders are expected to be self-sufficient and know the route home. Where possible routes will be published in advance on the various media (website – events page, Facebook, Twitter & Strava) so members know what to expect on the ride. Suggested route for this Thursday is https://www.strava.com/routes/2231773, includes an optional final ascent of Ashurst Beacon, if you don’t feel like it upon arrival it is simple enough to cut off the corner through Parbold and back to Croston.
Social club ride: Leaves Croston Sports Club at 18:30 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!
