Ready to Join?

Join us again for a Sunday all day ride and lunch from Reading along off-road tracks, stopping for lunch in a pub for lunch en-route. This ride takes us over to Caversham then and then on offroad tracks, lanes and quiet roads to via Goring onto the Ridgeway to Aldworth for lunch and then a circular route coming back to Reading. The pub is tiny but has a beautiful beer garden where we can sit and eat.

Total riding time of about 5 hours and about 1 hour in the pub. There are some hills, offroad tracks and we will be doing around 30 miles, so make sure you are physically prepared for it and take snacks and energy supplements as well as enough water. The terrain is not too challenging and corresponds to British Cycling MTB Level 2 but due to the length of the ride, I have classified it as level 3 according to my levels, check out: Protected content
Make sure you are on time because we will not wait. Don't come if you haven't signed up or informed me personally at least 4 hours before the ride.

* Suitable for mountain bikes and hybrid bikes.
* Please come equipped with helmets, gloves and suitable clothes (waterproof/windproof jacket as well as suitable top and leggings)
* Bring water bottles recommended.
* Bring a snack (nuts, fruits, cereal bars) if you need it because we will only have lunch at nearly the end of the ride.
* Make sure you have good front and rear lights on your bike, fully charged or with spare batteries, because it may be dark when we get back
