83 miles in the Peaks today. Tough one with Blaze Hill, Pyms Chair, Goyt Valley and Parts of the Cat. Cafe stop in Buxton after 40 miles
The club ride is at a fast pace covering anything from 45-100 miles depending on terrain. We typically ride at above 17mph average and we would like to ask riders to be respectful of this for your own safety and the safety of the group. Suitable for road bikes only.

We meet at the Mulberry Tree, Stockton Heath, WA4 2AF and leave at 8:30AM prompt. Please aim to be at the meeting point by 08:20AM
Bikes MUST be in good working order and you MUST have a helmet. You need to carry a spare inner tube or puncture repair kit and when necessary you should also have lights.
– Please keep pavements clear at meeting points, be respectful of pedestrians.
– Riders must ride maximum two abreast – not four! – and on the left hand side of the road – safety first!
– We generally ride as a single group, unless we have 12 or more riders when we would split into 2 groups (assuming we have enough ride leaders to accommodate this)
– Riders must have someone they can phone in case of emergencies and mechanical failure – it is not the responsibility of the leaders to fix a bike – but they will help if they can.
