Our first “groups of six” Sunday is upon us! We have four routes to choose from, so please get yourself to the “start line” on Sunday morning just before your intended start. Please ensure you have a full understanding of your chosen route.
Depending on numbers for each ride we may split into defined expected pace groups, please remember our motto “no one will be left behind” so it’s your responsibility to keep an eye over your shoulder and look after those behind you, allow them to hang on to your back wheel to keep the group together.
These planned routes are all road bike routes, if you arrive on a mountain bike, unless you are very fit you may struggle to keep up! All rides meet at the church in Ivinghoe, please divide into groups of six or less as riders arrive.
The 9am route is the longest option, it takes in some hills over to the Hughenden Valley before a flat return. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35558253
The medium 10am ride takes in some local villages on quiet roads https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35557747
The shorter 10am ride takes us to Stewkley via Wingrave https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35557696
At 11am on Sunday Dave B has kindly volunteered to lead a ride for those beginning or gaining fitness with a flatish 14 mile route on quiet roads, a great introduction to riding in a group, obviously we are capped at six per group, so only five riders can benefit from Dave’s leadership. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35557666
Towards the end of the week we will publish a poll on our facebook group “the rear hub”. Please add your expected ride choice. This enables everyone to understand how many riders we are expecting, so we know if groups need splitting and also encourages riders to get out as they know they will have some company!
Getting back into group riding may take some getting used to so please look after your fellow riders with appropriate warnings and road space, stay safe and enjoy the rides!
