Midweek Winter Miles

With the dark nights approaching and a dual aim of keeping the legs turning over and safety in numbers, Terry Ottaway has set up a midweek group ride on Tuesday and Thursday nights.

The first run out was on Tuesday 29 September – it was a good run out, with 7 riders heading out for a couple of hours from C-L-S, via Burnhope, Lanchester, Cornsay Coillery, Waterhouses, Esh Winning, Ushaw Moor, Bearpark and back to C-L-S.

Meeting point is outside Cestria Cycles at 6.30pm.  Rides will typically be 30 miles ish at 15-16 miles per hour.  The route will be posted the night before to take in to account weather conditions.

There won’t be any leader as such and riders should be self sufficient and make themselves familiar with the route before hand. There will be three or four routes which we will stick to throughout. Details to follow – watch the club Facebook page for details of routes and other last minute details.

Lights are going to be a must due to start and finishing times.  Temperature drops off quickly too, so dress for chilly nights!

If anyone has route suggestions please let Terry know, the aim of the rides is for us all to get out and get some group riding done.
