Routes Saturday 24th February
Meet 9 am main car park area outside Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please ensure you check through the routes beforehand and download the route on your chosen device or carry a map print out. Really recommend you do this in case you get split from the group – better to know for yourself where the route is going 😉
Here are a few tips to follow so that hopefully everyone can get the pace of ride they want:-
The approximate average speeds for each group are a guideline based on previous rides history. If you’re not sure which ride to join with it’s better to go with a slower pace and see how you get on. If you wish to ride at either a higher or lower pace than the average speeds suggested please discuss this with the other riders at the start and if needs be split up into smaller groups as appropriate. During the ride if your group seems to be splitting it’s a good idea for the front person to pull over, group everyone together and review whether the group needs to split down again. Good communication is the key to a good ride 😉
Many thanks for this week’s routes suggestions – enjoy 🙂
