The Midweek Ride offers a core ride of around 30 – 45 miles exploring lanes and byways and always starting at 10.00 a.m. Sometimes the ride starts from The Green, Syston; sometimes the core ride starts around 10 miles away (with the option for those riders wishing to add 20 miles to their day to ride out to this start, leaving The Green in Syston at 09.00 a.m); and there are occasional car-assisted rides starting 20 miles or more away from Syston – again the core ride starts at 10.00 a.m.
All rides feature a cafe or pub stop for refreshments, around 12.30 p.m. To unravel this complexity, an email is sent out to all interested riders on Tuesday (plus there’s a follow-up email on Friday discussing the ride). If you are coming along for the first time please email martin [at] systonsyclers [dot] com, so that you can be added to the email list.
We now have 25 to 30 riders out each week, so we’ve split the rides into three levels – the Striders go furthest and fastest, the Middlers ride at a steadier pace over 35 miles, and the Tourists take a gentle approach, and ride around 30 miles. The standards relate to Saturday’s Red/Yellow, Orange and Green groups.
