If you want to come along on one of our rides then all you really need to do is just turn up at the listed start, it really is as easy as that!
However there are some practical things to consider…
Most bikes are suitable, though very narrow tyres can be a bit uncomfortable on poorer road surfaces, we also suggest mudguards for poor weather, and on paths such as the Wirral Way but as long as you ride at the back and don’t splash us we don’t insist ;-
All we ask is that your bike is safe and roadworthy and that you carry a puncture repair kit, and ideally a spare inner tube (a much quicker fix) -
This page usually has click-
Our rides usually have a lunch stop, either at a cafe or somewhere for a picnic -
Distances we ride vary, leaders can advise on the planned total and if any easy options exist to take a shortcut home (Merseyrail?) you can leave the ride at any point you want, perhaps a shortcut you know, or an easy route towards home (Wirral Way?) BUT you must tell us before you leave!!
Don’t think we are manic road warriors, we usually average just 10-
We will not leave anyone behind but if you are struggling with our modest speed please let someone know and we can probably split an experienced rider from the group to stay with you, allowing the majority of the group to stay together, or perhaps we can guide you to a station or somewhere to rest.
We can always suggest other groups or ideas for building up stamina if our speed seems beyond you -
