What we'll do:

Join us for an enjoyable on-road ride starting from Reading with a stop off at the pub before returning. Being a Level 2 road ride, this will take place mainly on country lanes with a few more major roads when necessary with some moderate hills.

We will cycle for two to three hours, with about an hour at the pub and cover between 18 and 25 miles. This ride is suitable for people who are used to being in the saddle for a few hours and who are generally fit with good energy levels through regular cycling, gym or other physical activity.

In winter the pub will be closer to Reading to make a shorter return, in the summer we will venture out to further country pubs.

The pace will be moderate and will ride either as a pack or faster riders waiting at intersections, with frequent opportunities to stop as required.

What to bring:

- Hybrid bike or Road bikein good working condition - bike check before the ride.

- Helmet and appropriate clothing, including shoes, gloves, glasses and waterproofs

- Good quality front and rear lights, fully charged, as it will be dark when we return

- Water Bottle or Camelback as well as snacks (fruit, cereals, energy bars, electrolytes)

- Advisable: spare inner tube, puncture repair kit, mobile phone. Important to know:
