  1. Our main ride time is a Sunday. Depending on what we did the weekend before, we decide where to go some time the following week and advertise this on the web site. The new club will set out to include one major ride every 4 to 5 weeks, or more if the demand is there. These rides can be anywhere from South Wales  to Ashton court or the Quantocks.
  2. The weekends between major rides are normally spent on local rides, Ashton court, Leigh woods or even Cheddar. The longer rides start around 8.00am to 9.00am and usually finish plan to arrive home around 3.00pm.
  3. This year our midweek ride is normally on a Wednesday or Friday night around 6.00pm - 7:00pm to give everyone a chance to get home from work and climb into bike gear. These rides, because of the obvious time restrictions, are usually concentrated around the Ashton court and Leigh woods area. We don't set targets for ride times but do try to get back home for about 9.00pm in the lighter summer nights. We cover anything from 5 to 20 miles, depending on the mood of the group. The slowest man always dictates the pace and we never leave anyone behind. Occasionally we interrupt these rides with practice or fun "test" sessions over a particularly difficult or unique obstacle for a short period.
