SOCIAL: Saturday Café Run (Winter)
Date(s) - 15/01/2022
8:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Mulberry Tree
Taking place on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month, a Café run to Knutsford usually lead by the Club Chairman.
This is an opportunity for prospective members to join us for a ride and maybe for some, have their first experience of riding in a group. For existing members it’s another chance to get out and spin the legs. Knutsford marks halfway and offers a number of options but typically we will stop for coffee at Apus.
At circa 33miles and no real hills this is an ideal introduction to Club/Group riding – or a great excuse to get for a couple of hours on a Saturday morning.
Average speed on a Social ride is typically between 12mph and 14mph.
Routes may vary but will usually be one of the following:
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.
