Details of individual rides will often be put up on our Facebook page a few days beforehand. Even if no ride details are posted in advance, please meet up at the above places / times, and a ride will be agreed by whoever is there on the day.

All members are encouraged to post suggested rides – it’s very easy: just think about where you want to ride and put the suggestion up on the Facebook page!


Sunday Rides

Proposed routes listed below (please note, these are suggested routes only,the final route will be posted on Facebook the Thursday before the ride, taking account of the weather forecast, or decided by those out riding on the day)

Starting Point
Rhos-On-Sea Tourist Information Office LL28 4EN, opposite the Caley Arms Pub.  Depart at 9 AM.

Speed & Distance
The Sunday rides are harder and faster than the Intermediate Saturday rides, and are therefore best suited to more experienced riders. Distances and pace will increase from spring into summer.

Normally 16–17mph or at the pace of the slowest riders.
Standard route is anywhere between 60 – 100 miles.

 

Route options
We ride all over Snowdonia National Park and along the North Wales coast line. Some times we will ride to Anglesey. If you have a suggestion for a Sunday ride, please suggest it on our Facebook page. Proposed so far:
