Sunlight Club Rides
Tuesday Chain Gang
A fast-paced training ride that last between 90 and 120 minutes. Departs the Glegg Arms, Heswall at 6.30pm every Tuesday evening during the summer. 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
Two women-only rides, both straight-through with no cafe stop, held on alternate Saturdays to each other. The first is a steady paced, flatter ride of about 40 miles. The second is faster-paced, hillier and covers between 40 and 50 miles. Both rides depart from Eureka Cyclist Cafe, Two Mills at 9.30am. 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 Eureka Cyclist Cafe, Two Mills at 9.30am every Sunday. This is the club’s most popular ride and is an ideal introduction for potential new members.
Club Ride 10am
Slightly faster tempo than the 9.30am ride, and usually with more climbing, however, there is a cafe stop. Usually between 70 and 90 miles. Departs Eureka Cyclist Cafe, Two Mills at 10am every Sunday. This is our longest and most challenging club ride and is recommended for those who already have a good level of fitness.
