CLUB RIDES

There are presently two organised club rides every week as follows:

Wednesday evenings

18:30 to 20:30*
(summer only)
(often with a visit to the pub
on the way back to Dunmow!)

dunmow velo wednesday evenings
dunmow velo sunday mornings

Sunday mornings

08:30 to 11:30
(09:00 to 12:00 during winter months)*
(usually with a coffee stop
towards the end of the ride)

*Finish times are approximate and can vary depending upon the group(s), the weather, the route etc etc. The ride leaders will discuss and agree this with the group at the outset of each ride.

All Dunmow Velo club rides start and finish from the car park of the Great Dunmow Leisure Centre in Great Dunmow (unless otherwise stated) and are run with three ability groups:
dunmow velo group 3 icon

Group 1

(circa 15mph average)

This group is the individual cyclist who will have a basic/intermediate level of fitness able to ride comfortably for two hours covering between 28-30 miles. You may not have ridden within a group before or with several riders, but you will be given instruction on how to ride in a group. The pace of this group will be determined by the slowest rider within the group. Well stay together, no one will be left behind.

Group 2

(circa 17mph average)

This is the intermediate/experienced Rider who will be comfortable covering between 33-36 miles for two hours. You may not have ridden within a Group before or have less experience that those within group 3, but we will help you learn these skills and help develop your own riding abilities. (suitable to an experienced sportive or/solo Rider looking to ride within a Group).

Group 3

(circa 19mph average)

This group is for the experienced Rider who will be comfortable completing 36-38 miles within the two hour ride, again depending on the conditions and the route chosen. This a rider with an above average level of fitness and experience of riding within a group. You will be expected to take a turn on the front, to work within the Group and must act accordingly
