We ride every Saturday anything from 20 to 50 miles at a social , non elitist pace . If this sounds like your cup of tea join up , what have you got to lose ? We will ride all over the northwest , whether it be Liverpool , southport , wigan , Manchester , Bolton , as well as east Lancashire . If any members have any ideas for rides they would like to do , let me know and we can look into it so we keep the rides fresh. Also please note , this is a social cycling group and not a cycling club as such , you do not need a £2000 bike to ride with us , as long as you keep your bike reasonably well maintained youll be fine. The Saturday rides are also run between 9 and 11 mph average , and on the whole slower than the sunday rides , more of a beginner /intermediate level , saying that we have done up to 70 miles on a reasonably flat route in the summer , and we have done a few hilly rides but normally around 20 miles . I try to make sure we post a ride every Saturday wherever possible , so hope to see you soon. P.s. when asking to join the group , please fill in your profiles so we have an idea of what kind of cyclist you are are what type of rides you prefer . Empty profiles will not be added to the group in future . If you book on to a ride , we do expect you to turn up , places are limited , so if you dont turn up you are taking the place of someone who would have liked to ride . No shows will be deleted from the group as this isnt fair to the rest of the group . We also ride pretty close to British Cycling Guided ride standards , ie ratios of ride leader to riders . Also please do not go forward of the front ride leader unless told to do so , if you do , you will be deemed to have left the ride , and not be allowed back on the ride . Our aim is to keep the group as safe as possible and this cannot happen with people riding off the front .
