Recognise this? We're going to try it out to mark each future ride as being suitable for either Everyone (Green), Confidents (Amber) or Half-a-Heeds (Red). Of course this is just for guidance and you can ignore it completely - everyone is welcome on any of our rides, we just think it would be fair to try and give you an idea of any possible tricky terrain. Tell us what you think via forum or e-mail.
Midaircrisis is roughly 13 years old this year and that sounds lucky so why not join the Summer Tour and make it a really special one? Start planning your absence NOW! (looks like Welsh Wales)

Thursday nighters are 10-25 milers, 7:00pm start at Holystone, 3-3.5 hours and generally OK for fit new riders but you need decent lights you can see with, NOT CANDLES. You MUST wear a cycle helmet. Sundays are generally much longer, 8:00am to 10:00am starts from ride venue ending around teatime, and much harder rides. Gloves, waterproof coat, snack and drink recommended. Carry basic tools.
It's actually the Gollum's house - catches many people out, that one! Local rides almost always start from it at Holystone at 1900 on the bikes. Some may require transport if a little further afield.
Away days also start at Holystone around 0800 where we sort out the transport for however many bodies need it (with luck!) unless you live closer to the ride venue in which case we meet you there.
Cycle Sports can be dangerous, so we take this basic precaution - download our Emergency Contacts Form via link on left and bring it with you (also available at the Cave).
