Active – The Deep South
Date(s) - 29/12/2019
8:30 am - 1:00 pm
The Mulberry Tree
By popular request the usual Active month-end long run has been replaced in December by a shorter route to give people a chance to cleanse their systems of all the excess poultry flesh, mince pies and sherry. We’ll be taking the 41 mile 1200 ft route to Anderton boat lift (I haven’t been able to find anything on the internet indicating that it will be closed).
The Active ride is paced between 14-16 mph covering approximately 40-50 miles. We typically ride at around 15 mph average and we would like to ask riders to be respectful of this for your own safety and the safety of the group. Suitable for road bikes only.
You can view details of the route here: Anderton Detox (28906929)
We meet at the Mulberry Tree, Stockton Heath, WA4 2AF and leave at 8:30AM prompt.
Bikes MUST be in good working order and you MUST have a helmet. You need to carry a spare inner tube or puncture repair kit and when necessary you should also have lights.
– Please keep pavements clear at meeting points, be respectful of pedestrians.
– Riders must ride maximum two abreast – not four! – and on the left hand side of the road – safety first!
– We generally ride as a single group, unless we have 12 or more riders when we would split into 2 groups (assuming we have enough ride leaders to accommodate this)
– Riders must have someone they can phone in case of emergencies and mechanical failure – it is not the responsibility of the leaders to fix a bike – but they will help if they can.
