    Castle Cary!!!!!!!

    As much cake as you can eat for 10p (unless you have a conscience.)

    Route out will be Puxton, Sandford, Churchill should you wish to latch on.

    Hi,

    You are welcome to join us tomorrow for a ride to Castle Cary. We meet at Priory school (main gate) and will leave there around 8:45am.
    We are not a club so there are no rules and no fees.
    As for the average pace that's not easy thing to answer. We will probably be doing between 17 and 20mph depending on conditions and who is riding :-)
    Come along and have a go!

    Regards

    Martin

    Thank you Martin for the reply! Unfortunately I can't join tomorrow morning but I can come some other time. I want to join a faster group and I hope that I can keep up with you guys. How many miles do you usually do on a Sunday ride? Can I follow some of you on strava to make a rough idea of your pacing and routes? Many thanks!

    Regards
    Gabriel

    Generally we ride on a Saturday and the mileage is around 60 in the winter and 60 - 80 in the summer. Tomorrow is about 75

    I've sent a request for the strava group. I am currently following Baron Banana to have a rough ideea on what the group is doing. My average on a 60mls is around 16 on a solo ride but in a group I think it can be improved. I hope I can join on the next ride. Until then, I'll keep an eye on the forum

    Regards
    Gabriel
