Cleveland wheelers club runs / Ayton tourist info car park / 9.30 depart Saturday’s and Sunday’s / all groups

Hi wheelers. Please can you all take a look at the changes to club runs below starting from this weekend, notably the change to 9.30 depart for the steady / standard group on Saturdays and Sunday’s Thanks. Dave Kirton

The main club runs depart 9:30am every Sunday from Great Ayton Tourist Information Car Park. A smaller number of riders also meet at the same time on Saturdays. Members are encouraged to publish a suggested route on the members’ Facebook page which is open to all members. Please contact Dave Kirton if you need to be added to the group. There can be more than one ride in each group (eg hilly and flat). Group size should be restricted to about 12 riders for safety reasons.

Standard Group – Open to anyone who can achieve a minimum speed of 14mph when riding in a group on the flat. Aims to finish at 12 noon.

Medium Group – 16-18mph depending on terrain. Open to any member who can maintain a minimum speed of 18mph when riding in a group on the flat. Aims to be back between 12:30 and 1pm.

Fast Group – A longer ride averaging up to about 22mph for more experienced members only.

To protect yourself from claims from other road users or pedestrians in the event of a collision, all riders should have third party liability insurance which is available through Cycling UK, British Cycling and elsewhere.

Participation in club activities is entirely at your own risk. All participants should adhere to the Cleveland Wheelers’ Ride Guide which has been written by club members.
