I have been out 3 times with my local club (Ribble Valley, which I loved going out with) on a Sunday. I always thought that a Sunday morning club run, would just take up my morning! However, I was often getting back at 2 or 3pm. My weekends are precious and my other half was not exactly happy with getting back late in the afternoon.
Is this the norm for club runs? I personally would love to meet up at 9, have a 2 or 3 hour blast and be back home for 1130 am at the latest. Thus I still have the best part of the day.
I am a road cyclist and am riding with a club with the aim of racing in the not to distant future. Right not my focus is improving my fitness, endurance and speed.
My wife is an experienced horse rider and I have the opportunity to learn to ride horses. Can anyone tell me if this would offer any benefit to my cycling performance. Having never experienced horse riding I may be wrong, but imagine that leg strength, core strength, endurance and balance are crucial and this should translate nicely into cycling?
THE SUSSEX NOMADS, OPEN INVITE CLUB RUN IS APPROACHING. So maybe you have heard of this club the Sussex Nomads ? They are a friendly bunch of cyclist who compete in Time trials, Road Races and other forms of racing. But what they do most frequently is a good Clubrun. This is a great ride for fit beginners who have bought a racing bike, and also other cyclist in other clubs or unattached to a club, everybody is welcome on this ride. There are now 2 rides one of 50 miles and one of 42 miles. Everybody starts together and then the group splits into two groups when we get to Ringmer.
As the title where did you ride today?
I met up with the usual suspects and a couple of new faces on the 9.30 Club run. Warmer than it looked though there was still a chill in the air. Few skirmishes on Three Steps and across Harrisend Fell fast descent down to Scorton. Great brew at Pinewood as always and then home via the lanes at a nice clip with just under 50 miles in the bag.
