Grading of Rides
EASY/LEISURE RIDES are for anyone, including families and beginners, who just enjoy a leisurely ride in company. About 20 to 35 miles maximum at a target average speed of between 8-10 mph.
INTERMEDIATE RIDES are targeted at an average speed of between 11 -13 mph, over a distance of 30 to 45 miles.
CLUB RIDES are ridden at about 13-16 mph average over a distance of 45 to 55 miles.
Note: Average speeds above do not include stops. Rides will typically involve 3 to 3½ hours riding, plus a 45-60 minute stop for coffee/cake/brunch/lunch as appropriate.
For all rides, ride leaders will do their best to keep the pace within the target speed bracket, but will vary speeds as appropriate to accommodate different abilities of those in the group and depending on terrain. If it is clear that, within a riding group, all of the riders wish to increase (or decrease) the pace slightly, ride leaders will be free to do so but will take extra care to ensure that no rider ‘drops off the back’.
