About this event

For riders aiming for the Big100.

With summer approaching and some of the COVID rules being relaxed, thoughts will be returning to what we can get up to.

So looking towards mid-July (date to be confirmed subject to uptake) we are looking at planning a 100 mile ride. The emphasis of this ride is for those riders who would like to aim for this magic figure or even return to this figure but will be ridden at a very steady pace.

The ride will be based around enjoying a days’ worth of cycling and not on speed. The route will be planned to be as flat as possible and aiming to keep off the big hills to aid in saving energy for all involved. There will be stop points along the route for riders to stop and refuel from local shops, with the aim to stop for some proper food halfway round i.e. café cake stop.

As stated, this is for those who want to work towards this big figure so we are looking for riders who wish to take part and train leading up to the big day.

Depending on numbers, we will look for groups of 6 with a ride leader per group. The ride leader(s) will be riding along to give support to everyone in the group, as it will be a group event, so everyone starts and finishes together. Please let us know if this will interest you, as we will look at numbers and groups and go from there.

Don’t get me wrong, 100 miles is a big number so riders who wish to aim for this supported goal will need to start training in the weeks and months leading to the big day. This in mind here a some links regarding a training plan to build up your distance.

So please PM or message me if you’re up for this.

Please remember this is for riders aiming for 100 miles not for members who can knock 100 miles out as a normal ride. The average pace will be steady and ample places to stop if required.
