Autumn & Winter Ride Schedule 2017/18

Autumn & Winter Ride Schedule 2017/18

With another summer racing season coming to an end and nights drawing in, for many it is a time of recuperation, reflection and enjoying riding the bike in a social setting again.  To align with such desires, Revo Racing will be organising a series of five social/training rides over the course of the autumn and winter.

These rides will be steady-paced, approximately 50 miles in length, and with riders regrouping at the top of all climbs.  No rider will be left behind.  These rides are designed primarily for active club members, however non-members are welcome to come for a ride (or two) before being asked politely to join the club.

For the faster riders among the group, an optional “accelerator” loop can be provided within each ride (approximately 10 miles in length).  This allows a small group to leave the main ride and up the pace, with all riders regrouping again further up the road.  Details of how this works will be provided nearer the time.

Due to the geographically disperse location of Revo members, the rides will alternate between two start locations.  These have been designed to accommodate most members, with free parking on Sundays and with a large range of good route options available.

Route Details

Routes will be published on the club’s facebook page and emailed to members in the week preceding each ride.
This allows the route to compensate for possible bad weather / ice warnings.  Mudguards will be appreciated by all in wet weather!

Optional coffee and cake after the rides will be at The Globe Inn (Sampford Peverell) or The Bike Shed Cafe (Barnstaple).

Happy riding and see you soon…
