There was a good turnout of road cyclists for the ride to Horam this morning (Sunday). There were three groups: the Sportives (average speed of 17 mph), the Intermediates (average speed 15 mph) and the Tourers (average speed 12.5 mph). The three groups took different routes and arrived at the Lakeside Café within about 30 minutes of each other. The Tourers arrived first but, of course, they cycled the shortest distance.
Judging from the number of cyclists riding along the country lanes it’s clear that road cycling is becoming very popular. A few years ago, we saw very few cyclists on the roads on Sunday mornings. It’s great to see this increase in popularity!
