Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 9am.


Ride description:


This ride takes us up East Bawtry road, towards Ravenfield crossroads and descends into Hooton Roberts. We will then follow the road through Kilnhurst and keep heading towards Wentworth. From here we follow the route through Birdwell before eventually arriving at the Millers cafe. The route back takes us through Hemingfield and Low Stubbin before reaching Kilnhurst again. We will follow this through Hooton Roberts again but descend into Thrybergh and Dalton before tackling Brecks Lane to finish us off. This route is lumpy in places although suitable for most. 


Total distance is 33 mile / 53km with total elevation gain 2,418 feet / 737 metres.

The Café stop will be at the Millers Tea Room in Worsborough.


The pace on this ride will be approx 12-14mph.

What do you need?


Helmets are required, and carry at least one spare inner tube plus a basic tool kit comprising a minimum of:


Multi-tool


Tyre levers


Chain tool (chain breaker)


One inner tube (preferably two)


Spanner (with multiple size holes, helps with brake/pedal situations)


Spoke key


Mini pump (or gas canisters and valve)


An emergency tenner (useful at the cafe stop if nothing else)


In the Winter months riders should have full length mudguards and preferably a mudguard flap - it helps to keep our kit clean!


Our no-drop policy applies to every club ride so there will usually be a tool for the job amongst us somewhere and hands on deck to help out. However, it's still wise to carry a toolkit of your own in case you have to head back home alone for any reason.

Rules of the road


Everyone on a club ride needs to take responsibility for the safety of others as well as for themselves. In order to ensure our rides remain safe as well as good fun, we ask all our members to follow some basic rules and standards of cycling etiquette.


If you're considering just doing part of this ride we would recommend you familiarise yourself with the area and/or bring a map of some kind. However, if you ask the Road Captain they will help as much as possible in directing you.


Please let someone know if you leave the ride/group as we don't want to waste time searching for you if nothing is wrong. 


If you are struggling in anyway don't suffer in silence, please let the Road Captain know so they can help if possible.


Disclaimer


This is an opportunity to meet up for a ride with others and socialise. Although someone will be determining the route you are ultimately responsible for your own actions.
