Sunday rides start at 10 am or as shown in the programme, at locations in and around Exeter. We ride about 10 miles to an 'elevenses' stop at a cafe, where riders often join or leave the ride. We then ride to a lunch stop, for which most riders carry a picnic lunch. We often aim to return by around 4pm, having usually ridden between 35 and 60 miles. It's a good idea to carry plenty to drink and some energy-giving food such as bananas and muesli bars.
The leader navigates and keeps the group together. Average speed is adjusted to suit the slowest rider, but is typically 10-12 mph.
Newcomers are welcome on all of our rides, and we have a web page which gives useful information for new riders.
We want our rides to be as safe as possible, so we have some guidelines called "Our Group Riding Guidance & Principles".
If you have any other questions beforehand please contact our secretary, Lyndsay Kyrke-Smith email email@example.com or telephone 01392 469 838
