Cycling UK is advising that group riding of up to six people can now go ahead in England, in accordance with latest Government guidance, but it is urging everyone to follow best practice to minimise risk. The advisability of 'Mini' Group Rides will be revued and we'll see how such rides can be managed.

WHAT IS SPEED JUDGING?
Speed Judging is where riders are directed to a circular route which they will ride anticlockwise (left turns) The riders are told the distance of the circuit and they must estimate how long it will take them to ride a set amount of laps.
All time pieces including computer, watch phone etc are handed in to the time keeper and the riders are individually set off.
After completing their ride the riders times are calculated. The nearest to their estimated time is the winner receiving 6 points. 2nd = 5 points, 3rd = 4 points etc.
These points are added to the riders previous points and at the end of the season the rider with the most points wins
Speed Judging is NOT a race!
All ride distances are approximate.
Do not exceed your limits.
For your enjoyment and that of fellow riders only choose the lengths of rides that you are able to complete in comfort.
Leisure, mountain bike and family rides all start from Roseway in Gainsborough Town Centre unless otherwise stated.
New riders are welcome. You don’t have to be a member of Cycling UK or Aegir to ride, but if you are not and you enjoy our rides, the advantages of the clubs may be pointed out to you. If you would like information talk to Trevor Halstead.
Riders are free to join or leave the group whenever they wish. Please inform the ride leader when doing so.
Riders under the age of 18 must stay with the ride unless accompanied by a parent of guardian.
All ride speeds are approximate. No one is left behind, ride speeds are dictated by the slowest rider.
Short Rides speeds 8 – 12 MPH average, beginners welcome
Mountain bike ride speed 10 MPH average. (Contains off road riding)
Longer road ride speed 12-14 MPH average.
Rides are always led by an experienced rider, dinner stop and refreshment breaks are allowed for as required.
