Weekend leisure rides

A leisure ride

With the very popular club Audax series now completed, the calendar of (mostly) Sunday rides through to September has been published. For your advanced planning and negotiation, there are a good number of longer and hilly challenge rides listed. For each challenge ride, there is also a shorter alternative ride option with possibly an alternative start time to the longer ride.

A couple of rides worth highlighting include:

  • Saturday 5th August - 200km "Fish and chips" ride to Weston Super Mare.
  • Saturday 2nd September - 250km Round Wiltshire ride.
  • Sunday 10th September - 80mile "8 Horses of Wiltshire" - previously known as John Else's 80th birthday ride but he is no longer 80.

Also worth noting is a "transition ride" on Sunday 16th July. This is a shorter, easier leisure ride aimed at Saturday Riders who'd like to try out the Sunday rides. New riders will be accompanied by designated ride leaders so no-one will get left behind.​

All routes for the leisure rides are available by logging onto the web site and looking at the comments below the ride information or by searching http://ridewithgps.com/ and searching for the LR ride number.
