Group and Ride Structure

As well as our core Saturday Morning Club Run, we have a growing number of ‘Syndicates’, these are groups that go out at different times and appeal to different people.

The Sygnature Saturday Sycle

Our trademark ride, comprising of four groups:

Black, Red and Yellow start at 08:30 with the Green starting at 09:00 from Syston HQ.

Black – 45-55 miles at a quicker pace – rotating between four cafes – Newtown Linford, Asfordby Hill, Wymondham Mill and Hallaton.

Red – 40-50 miles at a steady pace – sharing the same cafe stops as the Black group

Yellow – Circa 30 miles at a steady pace, rotating between four cafes – Thrussington, Mountsorrell, Newtown Linford and Asfordby Hill

Green – 20 – 25 miles at 10 mph, Sharing the same cafe stops as the Yellow group

The idea of this structure is that it enables people to progress up through the groups – if they so desire as the gaps between the groups are very much achievable – coupled with our Beginners ride on Sunday, Syston Syclers offer an unrivalled spectrum of groups to get you in to or progress your cycling no matter what your ability.

We have the different Cafe stops to ensure that we get served quickly…once a month at least though all groups will meet at the very efficient and very nice Grange nurseries in Asfordby Hill!

The Midweek Ride

The Midweek Ride offers a core ride of around 30 – 35 miles exploring lanes and byways, 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 once a month there is a car-assisted ride 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 12.00 noon. To unravel this complexity, an email is sent out to all interested riders on Tuesday (plus there’s a follow-up email on Thursday 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.

Day: Wednesday
Time: 10:00 – 14:30
