Saturday 18th – Social Ride

There is a major Relay Running event at Hetton Lyons Park this weekend so unfortunately we do not have access to the facility.  However there is no need to be disappointed!  It simply means we get to run one of our legendary social rides instead of the normal coached session.

Coaches will be leading 3 rides to suit all riders.  Rides will be predominately cycle path & off-road so Hybrid / CX / MTB bikes required (no road bikes).  The ride is open to all members and their families so a great excuse for parents to come along and enjoy the ride.  Coaches would also welcome the support from parents.

IMPORTANT – We will be meeting at the back of Hetton Lyons Park in Hetton Industrial Estate ( not the park.  There is plenty of parking here and easy access onto the park.

The Rides

Please arrive between 09:45 and 10:00.  We will roll out at 10:15.  All rides will aim to be between 1.5 and 2 hours, approximate distances as follows:

Ride 1 – 25K

Ride 2 – 20k

Ride 3 – 10k


Please ensure your bikes are mechanical sound and checked before the ride.  All riders will need to bring the following:

  • Bike & Helmet
  • Appropriate Clothing and Water Proof
  • Water / Snack
  • Spare Tube / Puncture Repair
  • Pump
  • Mini toolkit

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning.
