The start location is now the small car park outside Froffy Coffee in Cam, opposite Tesco.
If you want to let others in the Club know yours plans for the weekend then you may fill in your name on the form here. This is not essential and if you prefer you can still turn up and see who's riding on the morning.
Club Run Groups
Each Sunday we normally run several club runs, each catering to different intensity and distance. All meet at the car park outside Froffy Coffee in Cam between 08:50 and 09:30.
The Social group takes a relaxed pace, generally covering about 40-50 miles. There is also a short Social ride which is the same pace but normally not much more than 30 miles (2 hours). The Intermediate rides cover 45-55 miles and are for those looking to develop their pace. The Pace group is for faster members, often riding 50-55 miles on a more challenging route at a sustained tempo. The aim is for all rides to meet at the same cafe halfway, taking us through the picturesque Cotswolds or across the Severn Bridge to Wales.
On the first Sunday of each month, we also run a introductory ride, for those who are new to the sport and group riding. This is a casual pace, catering for those who are there and often covers 25-30 miles, meeting up with the other groups at the cafe if possible. If you're interested in joining an intro ride then please let us know using the Contact Us page.
Routes are normally posted a few days before on our Facebook page and for club members we run a WhatsApp group to keep everyone up to date.
Club Run FAQs
Q - Will I be able to keep up with the group? A - Yes. If you're in any doubt as to your ability then join the social group. The pace is easy and even if you do slow down on a hill the group will wait for you at the top.
Q - Is putting my name on the form going to commit me to anything on the day? A - No, not at all. The ride list form is simply a convenient way to focus attention on the group rides and to inform members who is planning to ride, the cafe stop and maybe the route.
Q - So I can just turn up on a Sunday morning and see who's there? A - Yes. Note that in cases of extreme weather we'd normally tell everyone through the WhatsApp groups that no Club rides are happening.
Q - Can I move between groups? A - Of course. As you cycle more and more your ability will improve. If you feel you want to go further or faster then you can. The groups are flexible and are sorted-out on the morning of the ride.
Q - I have never ridden with the Club before. Can I just turn up and tag-along? A - Yes of course. There is no need to introduce yourself to the Club before you ride unless you want to. Just turn up and introduce yourself to the ride leader(s) and enjoy yourself.
