Please can you park in the main car park up the hill on the left.
In the interests of safety and the sanity of local motorists, please can all groups limit themselves to a maximum of 12 riders, Ideally leaving a 5 min gap between groups on the roll out.
Please can we remind you riding should be no more than 2 abreast keeping to the left, this will ensure cars can pass quickly and safely, reducing risk to all.
The group speed estimates really are just estimates, these may differ slightly depending on the conditions and route on the day.
Always ensure that the route is uploaded to your device.
Group 1 is a hard training session, similar to a road race, with safety of yourself, others in your group and other road users being paramount, if you decide to join and get dropped, it is your choice whether you decide to stop and wait for group 2, if you do this, please respect their pace, it is not fair to start disrupting their pace, or you can solo back to the finish without getting caught.
In the event of a mechanical, the group will wait until the issue has been sorted, this is of course if you have shouted loud enough for the group to hear.
