Weekly Training Ride
Our regular training rides are normally on a Wednesday evening. At the moment, we are spreading them across three evenings to ensure social distancing.
Rides are formed in three speed groups;
Social: average speed 12 - 14 mph
Medium: 14 - 16 mph
Fast: 17+ mph
Distances and routes vary, but the default trip is from our meeting point (Beckenham Rugby Club) to 'Shampan' corner along country lanes through Downe and back via Biggin Hill. This ride is around 22 miles.
Friday evenings in the summer see our 'pub ride', with various routes and speeds culminating in a social get together (once off the bikes!). Beer and sausage rolls seem to feature frequently...
In the winter, when country lanes are less appealing, we have a 10-mile time-trial loop around Hayes.
