Novice Rides - Rough Guide


Intended as an introduction to Club Cycling this is a social ride which will typically consist of a 90 to 120 min ride possibly with a local cafe stop.
Typically rides average 10 - 13mph and cover 20 - 30 miles. No-one will be "dropped"
The pace and duration of the ride varies depending on the mix of riders with faster loops put in to entertain progressing riders as required whilst the main ride continues at a social pace. 
Typical cafe stops are Belton Garden Centre, Ruskington Garden Centre, Heckington Wind Mill, Navenby Cafe, Roman Cafe A52.
If you are new to riding and not sure about your fitness the ride leader will be happy to discuss this with you (we were all beginners once so don't be shy) and doing so will enable them to plan the ride accordingly and / or to give advice regarding training to reach this level.
