Sunlight Club Rides
Tuesday Chain Gang
A fast-paced training ride that last between 90 and 120 minutes. Usually on Tuesday evening during the summer. Find out about time and place of departure on Sundays at Nets Cafe. This ride is both technically and physically demanding as it requires cycling close to the rider in front at high speeds. For this reason, it is recommended for experienced cyclists only.
Women's Ride 9.30am
Weekly women-only ride, sometimes straight-through with no cafe stop, but often a cafe entices us in! The rides alternate between a steady paced, flatter ride of about 40 miles and a faster-paced, hillier ride that covers between 40 and 50 miles. Rides depart from Nets Cafe, Little Neston at 9.30am every Saturday. New riders should first try out the steady ride.
Club Ride 9.30am
A steady-paced, straight-through ride with no cafe stop (although some members do occasionally take a refreshment break). Usually between 60 and 70 miles. Departs Nets Cafe, Little Neston at 9.30am every Sunday. This is the club’s most popular ride and is an ideal introduction for potential new members.
