Sunday Training Runs
Club members ride together every Sunday throughout the year, although during the racing season from March to September, numbers attending can be depleted. You will need to be able to ride for about 3 hours and be able to maintain a pace of around 14mph. Rides will usually aim to be finishing around 1 - 2pm.
Rides start at the Top o Town car park in Dorchester at 10am.
In addition, this autumn and winter will see the introduction of a fast group ride which will meet at 8.55 am (set off at 9am sharp) at an agreed location (will be posted on our FB page each week) The rides will be between 3 and 6 hours and be able to maintain a pace of around 18 mph. We will normally decide upon a cafe stop at outset to be towards the end of the ride to gather / regroup and finish the ride there.
The club run is a great way to get involved (although you don't have to be a member to participate), meet other riders, and build fitness for sportives, time trialling and road racing.
Details of all rides are usually posted on the club facebook page.
Young people who are 16 or younger
Adults responsible for unaccompanied riders aged 16 or under that want to take part in the Sunday club runs must contact Andrew Preston on 07768 441796, giving at least one week's notice. Safety of young people is paramount, and the adults on a club run may not always be able to allow children to join - so prior contact is essential to avoid disappointment.
