Cappuccino and Espresso – Sunday Rides
Cappuccino and Espresso Rides start in March/April.
Rides will normally be 40-50 mile distance with café stop.
Pace will be social (Capuccino) with options for faster group (Espresso.)
Espresso will have the option of a café stop or not.
It is hoped that the Espresso ride will take place every week but this will depend on who turns up and the availability of ride leaders.
On occasions there will be a Challenge Ride characterised by terrain, distance, or speed.
All start points will be selected from Lindum or Yarborough, with "drive’n’ride" encouraged on occasions to explore new areas. Local rides will start at 09:30 and aim to be back around 14:00 to 15:00
Winter training rides (traditionally known as Reliability Rides) run from January to March. Most of these rides start/finish from a member's home. A hot drink and food (soup/snacks/cake) is usually available. A small donation towards the cost of the refreshments is always appreciated (nominally £2.50). Please leave your cleated cycling shoes outside (or as directed by the householder).
Dates and locations can be found on the Events Calendar Page. All rides start at 9:30am The aim is to have several groups of riders - turnout numbers permitting. There will normally be three routes as follows;
50 - 55 miles - Groups A+ (ave speed 18 mph) and A- (ave speed 17 mph)
40 - 45 miles - Groups B+ (ave speed 16 mph) and B- (ave speed 15 mph)
35 - 40 miles - Group C (Ave speed 13mph)
There may also be a shorter 25 - 30 miles group D (av 13 mph)
The speeds stated above are a rough guide and may vary with group make up and terrain or weather. Groups may also split into smaller groups if the numbers in a group become unsafe. By starting all the groups at the same time it will be possible for riders to assess the proposed routes, weather and number of riders turning up and decide which group they wish to join.
The A and B groups should both get back at about 12:30. The C group are likely to be back sooner. There is no guarantee that all these groups will run every week - it is dependant on demand on the day.
Wednesday Morning Rides
These rides start by the Village Green, near Hykeham Crossroads at 09:30 and finish at a hostelry at around 12:30
A distance of about 40 miles is covered at an average speed of 14mph.
