CTC Exeter Sunday Rides

The table below shows Sunday rides for the next few months and we also have outline plans further ahead.
Details of all start locations are given here. Categories ('Cat') in the table below are:

A - Longer and faster rides (usually 35 to 60 miles long often with repeated climbing and steep hills)
B - Shorter and slower rides (usually 25 to 40 miles over a day, with some hills and a relaxed pace)
Dev - Events by Devon CTC
Ext - Events by external organisations


The weather forecast is dire so the rides on Sunday 3rd Sept might be cancelled. Keep your eye on the web site for latest information. You can also ring Roger on 07503 156981 for A ride information or John on 01404 813027 for the B ride before 9.00 on Sunday.

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 lyndsaykyrkesmith@gmail.com or telephone 01392 469 838
