Early Season 'Get Fit' Rides
We are lucky this year, with the birth of the 'Ride to the Sun' series of reliability rides, to have the opportunity network with other local club riders on 5 successive weeks, all the rides cost a mere £4 to enter (on the day so get their early enough to pay before the 9am start). Proceeds go to Kirklees Cycling Acadamy and all finish at a pub where snacks will be available :-
Sunday 29th January HDR Reliability Ride, 9am from The Pear Tree, Mirfield, 58 miles out east in the flatlands.
Sunday 5th February Drighlington BC Reliability Ride, 9am from Drighlington, Again out east and a similar mileage.
Sunday 12th February Batley Bash, 9am Thorpe Lane, Tingley. Pan flat and again 60 miles or so out east.
Sunday 19th February 3RT Reliability Ride. 9am Ritz, Brighouse. 70 or so miles, getting a bit hillier than the previous rides but that doesn't matter 'cos we'll all be really fit by then.
Sunday 26th February Halifax Imps Reliability Ride, 9am Ritz, Brighouse. The blue ribbon event, JK's annual painfest. Same route as last year so non-swimmers should take their water-wings.
Looks like an exciting series of rides, a big thanks to Mick Collins for his work in putting the series together, I'm already looking forward to getting to the pub. There's .GPX files knocking about on the internet for all the rides, I'll track them down and put a link on the blog in the week prior to the ride.
