Club Runs

 

Club runs are organised on a weekly basis, throughout the winter months (October - March) with a designated cafe stop, usually for 50-60 miles for the faster paced ride and around 30 miles for the steady paced ride. If numbers dictate, the clubrun will be split in groups depending on ability. The club run meets on a Sunday, at the Square, Market Harborough: 9am for the faster paced ride and 9:30am for the steady paced ride.


From March - October, the majority of members participate in racing activities and there is no organised club run. However club members wanting a Sunday morning ride still tend to meet on an informal basis at the Square in Market Harborough. These informal rides can be arranged via the forum on the website.


These are a great way of keeping in shape, getting comfortable with group riding skills and meeting up with club members at times when solitary riding can be less than pleasant.


For those of you unfamiliar with the club run, we have listed a few bullet points below covering etiquette. These are fairly straightforward and have been included for reasons of both safety and everyone's riding enjoyment.

  • Obey the rules of the road
  • Point to obstacles, holes etc
  • Advise of any oncoming cars/cars at the rear
  • Ride no more than 2 abreast and single out when required
  • No halfwheeling (when you ride half a wheel or more ahead of the person you are cycling with)
  • Stay together as a group.
  • If the group splits up, slow down or wait for dropped riders
  • Mudguards are highly recommended for your fellow cyclists protection as much as your own
  • Always carry spare inner tubes, tyre levers, pump, energy bars/gel, rain jacket etc
  • The club run is not a training ride, more a social ride with a café stop.
