The average ride time is 2.10hrs, average ride miles 28, the average speed is 13.2mph and average elevation is 2,000ft. The ride will normally include SOTW and two hill climbs. There is always plenty of chat but we don’t stop apart from to regroup after a segment or significant hill. We start and end at Hilden and ride mainly on country lanes but there will inevitably be some main roads too. We push hard on the flat and riders are encouraged to continually pedal even when descending.
Those joining from the easy group are warmly welcomed but they must be able to hold a wheel, drink and eat on the go and be able to mend a puncture. Those who do join from the easy group may find it a significant jump at first but please be assured, your fitness will keep improving, provided you are consistent. We all understand; we aim to encourage and love to see your confidence, ability and enjoyment continue to grow.
