- These are group rides. We aim to ride at the pace of the slowest member of the group. Please choose your appropriate group. Always bring adequate food and water for the length of the ride.

- Group 3. Average 25-26 km/h. Focus on bunch riding. Minimal stopping.
- Group 4. Average >27 km/h. Longer, fast bunch ride with little stopping.
- Groups 3 and 4 head in same direction, but ride at a different pace.
- Some ride etiquette:
- If you choose to leave the ride at any stage please ensure that others in the group are told.
- All groups will wait for riders with punctures/ mechanical issues.
- Riders who are faster on the hills are encouraged to circle back past the slowest riders.
- Be predictable, be safe. Be aware of how your actions impact upon other riders around you at all times.
- Bright clothing and a rear visible red light is recommended.
- Groups will be split if over 17 riders are in any group ride.
- No responsibility is taken by any person leading a group for the actions and safety of any individual in the group. Each person is responsible for their own safety. Road rules must be obeyed at all times.
- Distances are estimates.
- WET SUNDAYS: We ride in most weather, but if it’s really foul, meet at 10.30-11a.m. at our coffee shop (Narnia) for a social time and coffee.
