Sunday fast, slow, long and short rides
Every Sunday we run 4 or 5 types of club ride from the Aldeli Cafe in Alderley Edge. The types range from a steady, shorter ride via different intermediate paces to fast. The intermediate ride types will usually have two or three groups that offer different routes.
The rides begin with a briefing. The shorter routes are usually around 25-30 miles and the longer from 40-50 miles. Special rides may be much longer and hillier.
Each group’s pace is always set by the slowest rider and nobody will ever be dropped or left behind. We don’t stop in the middle of a ride other than for 5 minutes by the side of the road, but there’s a rewarding drink and food stop waiting for you at the end of each ride at our base, Aldeli Cafe.
We have gpx files available to Members for all our runs, allowing easy navigation for all riders if you want the route in advance.
If you would like to come along and join us for a run, non-members are welcome on Sunday rides but space is limited so please don’t just turn up. We ask that you get in touch first using our Contact Form. We can discuss with you which ride is the most suitable and make sure that there is space that week so you enjoy it to the full.
Our ride leaders are experienced cyclists and will be happy to advise you.
Thursday evening ride
We also run a mid-week Members’ ride on Thursday for most of the year (Winter months are weather permitting).
This sets off from Bramhall in differernt groups depending on speed, from fast to steady. The routes vary depending on time of year but there are different options on offer each week and they are usually between 25 and 30 miles. Return to Bramhall is from around 9.00pm.
Other than high summer, it’s dark by return so lights are mandatory on this ride.
Due to the later finish and slightly trickier conditions, this is for Adults and older youth riders and this isn’t suitable for younger riders or as a first trial ride out with the Club. We ask that first rides are on a Sunday – see above.
Friday morning ride
There is also a Friday morning “slackers” ride for those not in work! Usually two different paced groups going 40-50 miles in the Cheshire lanes sometimes with the odd climb thrown in.
