SUNDAY RIDES LIST

Traditionally the main weekly ride of the cycling club: long summer days in the saddle, shorter winter warmers and everything in between.  The pace is steady and sociable, and the destination is always a café. 

Whilst a calendar of destinations is planned in advance, both this and the route are confirmed on the day to suit the weather conditions and other requirements.  Sunday club rides also sample roads further afield through ‘park and rides’. 

Everyone is welcome on the Sunday club run although the distances may be a little long for beginners.  If in doubt speak to Rob or an experienced rider beforehand.

Airedale Olympic Reliability Ride

Sunday 12th February 2017

Start Time: 09.30

Starting at Leathley Lane lay-by (B6161), near Pool-in-Wharfedale

Finishing at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Knaresborough

Entry fee £4 payable in cash at the start

Refreshments available at the finish

 You can read more details about the ride by viewing the briefing notes HERE

"Reliability Rides – what to expect…

The reliability ride is traditionally a test of a cyclist’s reliability and that of their bike coming out of the winter period. The emphasis is on fitness, self-reliance and navigational skills, although they are also used by competitive cyclists for training ahead of the racing season.

The objective is to complete the prescribed route within a given time. The route is not signposted but a basic route map or description may be provided (along with a GPS file these days).

The ride is not a race. Like a normal cycling club ride, it takes place on open roads and without marshals etc. It is imperative that participants ride responsibly and in accordance with the Highway Code.

In comparison to sportives, reliability rides are low key and aimed at local club cyclists or riders interested in joining a club. There are no feedstations, timing chips or souvenir t-shirts etc, although refreshments are available following the ride.

For further information on reliability rides, see the British Cycling website:

https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/road/article/20100105-Get-Into-Cycling---Road---Reliability-Trials-0

Route cards and maps will be available at the start.
