We've got our December ride coming up on Saturday (10th). This will be
different from most of our runs in that it will only be a half-day ride.
We'll start at the usual time, but finish at about 13:00. This is partly
in deference to the mid-winter temperatures and short daylight hours,
but mainly because of the difficulty of finding a lunch venue in the
run-up to the festive season.
Our route will take in bike paths and quiet roads in the north of the city. The total distance will be about 16 miles. I don't expect any particular difficulties: no really steep hills or rough surfaces to worry about.
We'll meet as usual at 10:30 at the north end of Middle Meadow Walk. There will be no official lunch break or coffee break, but we'll aim to have a comfort stop at about the half-way point.
Looking ahead, we will be having our traditional Christmas morning ride on 25 December. This year we are joining our friends at EasyCycle for this event. We'll all meet at 10:30 at our usual start point, and aim to finish by 13:00 at the latest - possibly a little earlier. We'll not stray far from the city centre, so if you need to peel off early, that should be no problem.
I'll post more details of the Christmas ride nearer the time. And looking further ahead, our first ride of 2023 (14 January) will be our usual full-day run.
If you fancy joining us for any of our rides, just
turn up on the day. There's no need to contact us in advance.
