Sunday Clubruns (road): Held every Sunday, unless otherwise stated. Meet at the Bridge Cafe, 1 Market Place, Abridge RM4 1UA, 9am for 9.30am prompt departure. ie get there before 9.30 if you want a cuppa or sarnie first so that you have time to finish it before we leave! This ride is a medium pace run, 40-50 miles, depending upon abilities. From spring 2017 we will be running a 2nd faster group.
Contact John Browning for details; familybrowning@btinternet.com
The Sunday run includes an elevenses stop at a cafe and a pub for Lunch. Both are optional – anyone who wishes to ride-on without stopping for a break is still welcome to join us at Abridge for the ride out. So whether you want to cycle all day or just half a day, we welcome you all.
Please bring a cycle lock, puncture repair items (inner tube or patches, pump or inflator) and “bonk” food with you on clubruns. For winter rides we would ask that you have full mudguards and would suggest that you bring front and rear lights just in case (although we don’t intend to be out at night!).
