We ride on Saturday mornings from the rear of Proper cycle shop in Uckfield, starting at 9 O’clock, it’s a ride open to all, both ladies and gents. The ladies get to choose which cafe they want to go to (it’s all about the coffee and cake). It’s very much a social ride and definitely non drop. We ride as fast as the slowest rider but usually average a speed of around 13 mph depending on the amount of climbing (we always wait at the top of a hill if needed) and cover distances of between 25-45 miles depending on weather, ability and time of year. The group size varies between 5-12 people sometimes more.
If any anyone has a mechanical there is usually a willing person to assist, so all can ride with confidence that they wont be left stranded. In the event of a ride ending mechanical, the main group would continue but usually someone would stay with them until help arrives.
We welcome sensible people with road bikes. Helmets are compulsory and it’s a good idea to bring a spare inner tube and tools to change it in the case of a puncture.
