Setting off from Preston College at 9am on a Sunday morning, typically these rides are about 80-100 miles and are aimed at experienced riders who can ride at a fast pace (14-17 miles per hour) over long distances in hilly terrain. There will always one café stop.
A Ride Routes
The Sunday A rides cover up to (approximately) 100 miles in the Summer months and often take the group over to the Yorkshire Dales. A typical example of one of our Sunday A group rides can be seen below.
The ride took place on 11th November 2012 and the A group visited Cowan Bridge (near Kirkby Lonsdale). The ride has since been uploaded to our club’s Ride with GPS account – http://ridewithgps.com/users/305135
Start: Preston College.
Route Overview: Garstang, Cockerham, Dolphinholme, Wray, Hutton Roof.
Some other A group rides can be seen in the table below. This includes the Fleet Moss Audax, which the club has organised in recent years up to spring 2015.
