Cycle Seahaven Team / Group Road Ride Sunday 6th June 2021
Cycle Seahaven is hosting a members only Team and Multi-Group Road Ride on Sunday 6th June 2021. The routes have been chosen to allow club members to try out some of the routes by our Touring, Intermediate and Sportive Road Groups.
There will be a choice of 40 or 100 mile routes with the event running from 08:00 – 18:00.
For the 40-mile route, there will be a choice an B or a D graded route, the idea being to allow all members the opportunity to have an enjoyable day out on the bike whichever route(s) you choose.
The rides will be open for groups or teams of riders. The routes can be self -guided, however some or our Ride Leaders will be leading groups round the easier 40 mile route, so please contact Contact Dave Sutton if you want to book either a team or a place on the ride. The routes are available to download from the CSH RWGPS Club account, this will give you spoken turn by turn directions on your smartphone just like a car sat nav!
Event HQ will be Harbourside Gymnastics Academy, this business is owned by Club Member Mark Smoker, there is sufficient parking, toilets etc , he has kindly offered this to the club at no charge.
There will be a checkpoint with water and some energy snacks halfway through each ride. Refreshments and Loos are available at various cafes for those taking a more leisurely ride. Broom wagon support/recovery provided by the organisers in their cars will be available in the event of a major mechanical or other serious issue affecting a rider. It is advisable for all riders to use the what3words app to enable precise location should you need support.
All teams /Groups will ride the first 40 miles using either the B or D graded routes. For those that want to ride something more challenging, there will be a 2nd loop of 64 miles making a total distance of 103 miles. Ride HQ will be open from 08:00 – 18:00 giving a 10-hour time slot to complete the ride.
The B Graded initial 40-mile route goes north and returns via Littlington will be on quieter roads and lanes such as those used regularly by the Cycle Seahaven Tourers.
The D Graded initial 40-mile route will also be mainly on quieter roads and lanes, but heads north via Hindover and returns via Littlington using roads extensively used by the CSH Sportive and Intermediate Road Groups.
The longer 60-mile second route will use some busier roads with a couple of challenging climbs, but again will feature roads extensively used by the Intermediate and Sportive Cycle Seahaven road groups.
Please contact Dave Sutton if you want further information, wish to book a team or a place on the ride or would like help with RWGPS. Full details on the Club Calendar.
