First Sunday ride of the year and I’ll start with a plea to give these rides your support. I rode many of them last year and they really weren’t well attended, often merging with the Sunday Intermediate ride. Appreciate they’re not for everyone but they do give flexibility if you’re busy on Saturday or fancy some extra miles after a Saturday ride!!
Forecast is much the same as Saturday although slightly less chance of rain (8-10C and NE wind of 11-13mph).
Route is out east through Coalsnaughton/Rumbling Bridge and then it’s Glen Devon and Dunning Glen in clockwise direction to get the wind after the turn. Then back along the hillfoots to Peak/Toast for a bite to eat.
As always we ride as a group with no-one left behind. We can agree points where we can re-group on the 2 climbs if people want to do their own thing on them.
Obviously there’s a fair chance of a shower and it’s not too hot, so please dress sensibly and bring a rain jacket as well as the usual food, drink, spare tube/pump etc. If you haven’t taken your mudguards off yet it might be worth leaving them on this week!
