Exciting news for off-road and gravel fans…….we’re launching a regular Thursday evening series of local off-road rides. The routes will be around 20-25 miles, riding a mix of by-ways and bridleways with inter-linking tarmac road sections. Expect gravel, grass and farm tracks and the occasional bit of mud if it’s been particularly wet.
Meet-up: at the Sports Club, by the tennis courts ready to depart at 6.00pm each Thursday.
Route: we’ll decide route a few days beforehand, depending on conditions and post the RWGPS link in the calendar.
Bike type: our routes are best suited to MTBs. Front suspension would be nice to have but not essential. Most of the routes are rideable on gravel bikes, but you’ll need to be confident of your skills on any technical sections.
Refreshments: we’ll usually round off the ride with an optional refreshment stop at a pub, or maybe at the Sports Club bar.
Tyres: we’ve found that gravel tyres with a minimum 1.75″ width are best suited to our routes
Pre-register: via the usual link on the event page in the club calendar.
