Friday Evening Rides

Introducing your Friday Ride Coordinators:

  • From April through July: Brian H.
  • From August through October: Pete R.

Here are your Ride Coordinators’ thoughts on how we’ll roll this season on Fridays:

Friday evening rides typically start at 5:30 PM.

The routes vary slightly in length but are usually around 50 km. There will always be a shorter, usually less hilly option of around 30 km.

We strongly encourage you to host one, or more, of these rides. Either you can host the ride from your home or from any other location in our riding area. Either way you need to decide upon a route (which could simply be one of the many routes available on our Wonderful Website!) and either provide (paper) maps or ask folks to download them.

Most members who host rides from their homes also host a pot-luck supper afterwards, but this is not essential. Alternatively, you may elect to host a ride from a location other than your home and simply arrange for somewhere for folks to eat (restaurant, pub, picnic, etc.).

In other words you are most welcome to host a Friday ride in the same manner that most Tuesday morning rides are hosted.

Approximately once a month, we switch the Friday evening ride to a Saturday or Sunday morning ride, so you may wish to consider that as a hosting option.

The Calendar on the Website will inform you as to which rides have hosts. If it says “Ride Needs Host” then why not consider volunteering for it? Simply email the Ride Coordinator whose name and email address for that date will be provided in the calendar entry’s notes.

If by the Tuesday before the ride no-one has volunteered as host, then Plan B will kick in. In that case, the Calendar will say that the “Ride has No Host”. However, the Calendar and Website post will announce a starting location for the 5:30 PM ride and post a route map. It will be up the participants to figure out where to eat after the ride. One of the Friday Coordinators may, or may not, be there.

Hosting a Friday ride can be quite painless – all you have to do is email your Ride Coordinator with the starting location, route details and apres-ride eating arrangements.

Remember, our Club’s success is based on the participation of its wonderful members 🙂

See you on the road!

    Great introduction to the season. We will be volunteering to host a Friday pot luck ride in April but have to get home from South Texas first to get organized. Can’t wait to ride the Northumberland Hills, chat and have wonderful after-ride good conversations and share a meal with ‘y’all’.

    Thanks for posting this, Ruth. It looks great!

    I have attached the latest Friday spreadsheet. It runs until the end of July.

    Another lovely sunny day – nothing but sunshine since I returned from the UK – I love it!
