Hi new here..
Are any of these rides available on a sunday as im a night worker and can only rise early on a sunday.
The intro rides are only on Saturday, but you could join the C-ride on Sunday morning, if you feel up for it. Just come a bit earlier and mention you are a novice to the leader of that day and he/she will explain the basics.
What speed do you normally go?
Thanks for the reply Martine,
My average speed really depends on distance over a short 10 mile ride 16mph but it slows down to 13mph when i do 30m+ ive been riding solo for quite a while now and really looking for motivation to ride further than i do on my own, hence the interest of joining you guys.
A "C-ride" is normally 12-14 miles per hour and about 40 miles.
I agree that riding in a group is a good way for motivation.
So i just turn up at the park sunday morning?
yes, we leave at 8:30 sharp at Whittington Park. Come 10 minutes earlier and ask someone with a jersey to give you some quick instructions about the signs/rules we use while riding in a group. Also when the C-group is gathered, mention to the leader you are a novice such that he/she can give some extra instructions if needed and keep an eye out.
The idea is to always stay as a group, unless it is a steep hill in which case everyone waits at the top.
Ill see you sunday.
I am afraid that I have had to mark myself as not attending as I have family commitments. Gutted to be missing this, not least because Mr. W has signed up.
Sorry to hear @GeorgeB. The next one is in the middle of December. Have fun with family.
Thanks Martine, will do. Hopefully see you in December.
Note to all participants
I changed the starting time to 8:30 (in stead of 8:45) which allows us to ride out without traffic. I will also mention this in the personal message with more details on Thursday.
looking forward to Saturdays ride. Has the meeting point been announced yet?
I will send all the additional information including meeting point, by personal message on Thursday. See you on Saturday
Hi, I'd be keen to come along if anyone drops out before Saturday - If not will there be another ride in December or January? Thanks
yes there will be an intro in December. But keep an eye for any dropouts.
Thanks for the update re the meet details :)
You should all now have a personal message (when logged in, top right corner of the website "messages"), with information about start location and route.
@Piers a spot just became vacant. can you press the "attend" button if you are still interested.
I am having to drop out, unfortunately - my left crank fell off on my commute home today and need a whole replacement chainset... An expensive commute home. Hopefully someone else can take my spot and I can come to December's

Hi, just snapped up the last place after @SimonR 's misfortune lead to my fortune, sorry to hear that by the way! @Martine, would it be possible to send me the personal message you speak of that you've sent everyone? Thanks, Tom
@walkertom @Piers you should have received a personal message in the message system on the forum (top right). See you on Saturday.
@SimonR Sorry to hear your bike has broken down. I hope you are are not injured yourself. Hopefully see you in December (13th).
Reluctantly pulling out, have texted Martine, have a good one
Hi there. I've just signed up to the intro ride tomorrow. Hoping it's not full up already. Thanks!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
