Dress appropriately for the season. Try to bring a rolled up waterproof, and get 'overshoes', head gear and good gloves for winter riding.
Replace your tyres regularly, and try to bring a full repair kit (spare tubes, allen keys, tyre levers, a pump and a muti-tool. Mudguards are not compulsory but are recommended for group riding, especially during the Winter months. They keep you, and the riders around you, drier and therefore warmer. Racing bikes without mudguard clearance can be fitted with 'clip-on' mudguards like 'Race Blades' and 'Crud Road Racer Mudguards'.'
Try to have a decent breakfast. For long rides, or rides longer than you are regularly used to, consider a sports supplement drink in your water bottle and carrying a banana, energy or chocolate bar. Drink plenty throughout the ride, even in winter, to avoid dehydration.
Our Club Run are included free with the annual membership. However for longer Runs it is advised to bring Cash for Café stops or Potential Emergencies. A Mobile phone is always recommended to be carried when coming on a Club Run just in case of Emergencies.
'Bonking' or Hitting-The-Wall, is running low on sugar: sweating, trembling, feel sick or light headed. A banana or energy bar should bring you around. Always tell other riders if you are suffering, so that we can slow down for you.
Interested in joining us?
If you are intending to join us, let us know in advance so that we can keep an eye out for you. Keep an eye out for others and share riding at the front. There is etiquette to riding in a group - ask the riders around you to explain what the hand signals to each other mean.
