Skipton Reliability Ride – Sunday 1st March 2015

This Sunday (1st March 2015) is the Skipton Reliability ride, starting from Carleton Village Hall. The event is organised and run by Craven District council.

Very similar to the Otley reliability ride in structure. There is a route, a start point and time, a load of riders and you need to find your own way round the route and back to the start. The whole point is to prove (to yourself) that you and your bike are reliable. It’s not a race, or a group ride, but you’re welcome to ride it with your friends and it should be a great day out.

There is 2 routes, a 30 mile route (map) and a 60 mile route (map). Time limit on the 30 mile is 3 hours and 4.5 hours on the 60.

It’s £5 entry (sign on the day only 9am to 9.45am) and there is food to buy at the finish.

Steady Sunday 3 – 1st Feb

Sunday, the 1st February 2015, is the 3rd Steady 50 Sunday ride. The Steady 50 sits somewhere between the Saturday Social rides and the Sunday Sport rides.

Expect an average speed of around 14-15mph (last one was closer to 14mph). No-one will get dropped and we’ll regroup at the top of hills and major junctions.

This month’s we’re going to have a go at the route we planned last time but couldn’t do because of ice. Hopefully we’ll get some sunshine and clear, dry roads.

Meet at 9am outside Dave Ferguson Cycles in Skipton.
