Routes Saturday 24th March
Meet 9 am in main car park area outside Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please familiarise yourselves with the routes beforehand. Take a look at the approximate average speeds of each ride group and go with the one that most suits your pace. If you’d like to do one of the routes at a higher or lower average speed than stated, then message via the club whatsapp group to check if anyone else fancies joining up with you. Alternatively check on the morning before the ride start. Whatever group you are in it’s always a good idea to gather together during the first 15 minutes of the ride to check then if the pace is ok for everyone or if the group needs to split down. Communication is the key to an enjoyable and safe ride 😉
