Let’s Ride Categories of Rides.
Rides advertised on this web site have a link to Let’s Ride for booking. On Let’s Ride we use the following categories to assist in choosing a ride but be aware they are subjective definitions so one rider’s “Steady” will seem “Challenging” to another.

Easy Going. SPOKES Slow Pace rides, up to 15 miles, flat and no busy roads.
Steady. SPOKES Slow Pace rides over 15 miles with some easy climbing and SPOKES Medium Pace rides which are 30 miles or less with some easy climbing.
Challenging.  Any ride with challenging climbs, any SPOKES Fast Pace ride and Medium Pace rides over 30 miles.
Mountain Bike. Off Road rides on unsurfaced trails.

Approximate Ride Duration
On Let’s Ride we indicate an approximate overall time for the ride.  The nature of group cycling means these can only be guide times not guarantees.

Covid 19 and SPOKES Rides
Please follow Covid 19 government guidance on SPOKES Rides and if you have Covid 19 symptoms do not join the ride.  Aim to be self-sufficient on the ride, carrying all that you need for puncture and bike repair, first aid and refreshment.

Non Members
Non Members are welcome on most of our rides but we ask that you join after 3 rides, if you wish to continue riding with us.

On rare occasions an event has to be cancelled. If you plan to attend an event please check on this web site immediately before the event that there have been no changes to the arrangements.
