If you've been cycling on your own for a while - or perhaps commuting on your bike - and you're confident you can ride over 20 miles comfortably, then it might be time to try pushing yourself a little further and riding with a cycling club. Redhill CC has a wide range of road rides on Saturdays from Newcomers to Racers.
All Saturday rides start at 9am SHARP from Woodhatch Park opposite 'The Angel' pub, south of Reigate (see the map below). Please arrive 10 minutes early to sign in for your ride. We do this so we have your mobile and emergency contact numbers.
NON MEMBERS £2 per ride on a ride-before-you-join basis.
1) CHRIS HALL will lead a gentle Newcomers/Social ride of 20 - 30 miles at a pace of 13-14mph average (depending on riders' ability/appetite) with a guaranteed teastop halfway.
2) ADRIAN WEBB will lead a Social Intermediate ride at 14 - 15mph average of 56 miles. Destination to be confirmed but may include some challenging hills and there will be a teastop at Penshurst. CLICK HERE for the probable route.
