ACC Routes Saturday 8th July
Meet 0830 main car park outside Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please ensure you take a look at the route beforehand – even if you’re not on strava it’s simple to just register for it to view the routes in detail. The average speeds are a guideline for the pace of the ride so they are worth checking too to judge if you’re on the most appropriate ride for you. If you want to have a go at any of the routes but at a different average speed then let others know at the start to check who would like to join you 🙂
Many thanks for the route suggestions, – enjoy 🙂
