ACC Routes Saturday 9th September
Meet 0830 main carpark outside Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please be sure to familiarise yourselves with the routes beforehand. Cycling tip for this week is to ensure you communicate well in the group rides – ie. front rider checking behind in case anyone has fallen off the back and mid and rear riders to communicate up the line in case anyone has. Also shout up amongst yourselves if the pace needs to be eased off or increased – remember communication is the key to happy safe riding 😉
Many thanks for this week’s route suggestions – enjoy 🙂
