The road riding section of the club offers its
members a variety of events to participate in during the course of the year.
Road runs are organised using the drop off
system, so all riders can enjoy the ride-out without the need to race, or
worry about losing the group. You will be paired with another rider until
you are happy with how the drop off works. All types of bikes are welcome in
the club and at present you will find a wide variety.
You can participate in as many ride-outs as you
like. Ride when it suits you.
We use a variety of interesting roads on our
ride-outs, trying to avoid dual carriageways and motorways where possible.
During the warmer months we have evening runs on
Wednesdays; currently leaving Applegreen Service Station at 7:30, they are usually approximately 45
miles in distance to a pub or sometimes to a Fish 'n' Chip restaurant. At
the end of September some members continue to go out on ride outs, but for
those who no longer wish to go out in the dark, wet and cold we meet in the
clubhouse at 8:00. the clubhouse is due to reopen in September, details will
be on the website when known.There are also a number of other organised events on
Wednesday evenings i.e. bowling, quiz nights, film shows, etc.
There is a Sunday breakfast and lunch run each
month, breakfast runs currently leave the Applegreen Service Station at 9:00 and lunch runs leave at
11:00. During the warmer months the runs sometimes continue after the meal
to take advantage of the weather.
We also organise weekend tours and runs to
functions and places of interest. Some members take part in the Welsh Rally
and National Rally. Most years there is a European tour.
A camping weekend has also become a popular
event with members.
A major event in the clubs calendar is a
Charity Ride which this year the club has had to cancel because of the
pandemic but is hoped to resume next year.
