The first Team road.cc rideout of 2016 is nearly upon us so if you can make it to Swindon, Wiltshire a week Sunday (24th Jan) then why not get your name down and come and join us for a loop through the lanes to Cirencester and back.
The team at Hargroves Cycles will be laying on the hospitality once again with pre and post ride refreshments plus there will be technical support on hand if you need it. Some of the staff will even be leading the rides.
That's right 'rides' - we'll be laying on a couple to suit your legs and mood.
The shorter option is a relatively flat 55km taking in the countryside and water parks of the Cotswolds with a cafe stop in Cirencester at the mid way point.
The longer route will head off in the same direction but will add on an extra 20km and a few more meters of climbing. Don't worry, you'll still be getting your coffee stop on this one too.
We'll decide on pace on the day when we know who's doing what but the usual club rules will apply, no one will be left behind. It's a social group ride after all and we want everyone to have plenty of fun.
Alongside the Hargroves team some of the road.cc staff will be there also, (I will be for sure) flitting around the groups out on the road and mingling at the store.
If you want to come along register here - it's free!!
Next month Hargroves will be working with us to put on another rideout from their Chichester store on the 21st February. We'll be back with more details soon but it will follow the same setup as above, a couple of routes, cafe stop etc. Registration is here.

With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for road.cc back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
