Whether you’re under 16 or over 60 we aim to cater for all levels. Not everyone has the time, energy or inclination to ride flat out for long distances, some people can only ride occasionally but we hope to provide safe, enjoyable rides for everyone. We split our rides into different speed and distance teams, with Ride Leaders choosing the routes and keeping everyone together. Some rides will be combined, depending on the numbers and available Leaders. In the T1-T4 rides we keep the group together but in the T5-T6 rides, if you can’t keep up, you may be dropped.
T1: Newcomers welcome. 15/20 miles. Maybe stopping for tea somewhere. Speed of the slowest.
T2: 25/30 miles but not too fast, speed of the slowest, 12/14mph average. Can include a tea stop.
T3: 30/35 miles around 15mph average, no stops for tea until back at Nero’s HQ.
T4: 35/50 miles at 15/16mph average, a training ride for experienced riders.
T5: A faster training ride, 40/50 miles at 17/18mph average.
T6: Our fastest training ride, 40/70 miles, 18-20mph average or more.
On occasions we run special rides, advertised in advance of 50-100 miles at various speeds but plenty of long, gentle rides for all levels.
