Sunday the 20th March sees a return of the Skipton Reliability Ride, this year run by Skipton Cycling Club. Start/Finish point is behind Chevin Cycles in Skipton. Sign-on from 9:00am, if we have a large number of riders, riders will be set off in groups. Please arrive by at least 9:20am to avoid getting mixed up with the wrong group!.
Full SCC membership is £20 or if you are a member of another club and wish to ride the reliability ride you can join SCC as a 2nd claim member for £10.
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.
Finishers within the time limit will be listed on the Skipton Cycling Club website. If you want to ride the 100km at a more leisurely pace that’s fine, just let us know at sign-on.
We have 2 distances to choose from. A 100km with a 3 hour 45 minute time limit departing at 9:30am:
And a 50km with a 3 hour time limit leaving at 9:45am:
