The club have registered this coming Sunday’s Reliability Rides as a British Cycling event.
Members can ride the routes alone, with a friend or in groups up to 6 for any cafe stop.
You will need to sign in at the table outside the club entrance at Abbrook anytime between 0830- 0930h, please bring your own pen!
There is no time limit but you must sign back in when you finish.
These rides are about the reliability of the rider, their bike, their ability to follow a route and being able to handle any of the normal eventualities that can occur on a ride.
All routes go up the valley then the 50km goes up Doccombe to Moretonhampstead for a cafe stop while the 80km and 100km turn right up Longdown.
