SUNDAY MORNING RUNS
We meet at the clubroom at 8.55am and leave at 9am (prompt) throughout the year.
We aim to do about 50 miles no stop and try to average about 18mph for the ride.
Every effort is made to keep the group together so, we wait for anyone who is struggling, has a puncture or other mechanical problem.
The routes is the same every week. Contact Ian Holbrook for details
Organised via WhatsApp and can vary in length from 50 to 100 miles average 17mph, contact Paul Jennings for Details
Tuesday and Thursday
The meet is always at VeloRunner shop and usually 7pm . Details always on Facebook
The rides vary according to the time of year.
In the dark nights of winter the ride is about an hour and a half up and down the A34 between Walton Island and Trentham Island. (about 12 miles per lap).
This road is for the most part well lit.
In the summer the Tuesday & Thursday ride is 1 lap of the Gnosall circuit or Swynerton usually about 25 miles.
These rides are for training and are significantly quicker than the Sunday morning and Wednesday rides.
But with all the rides there are plenty of places for dropped riders to cut across the route, have a rest and rejoin the group. The average on training rides is 20-25 mph depending on how may out, conditions etc.
With all the group rides make sure you have with you:
A basic tool kit, including spare inner tube and pump
small sum of money
and of course turn up with a working bike.
