Alex Warburton Memorial Ride 2019 - albaRosa CC

Reliability Trial , Leeds – Sunday, 24 Feb 2019

Event Summary

Event Overview

WHAT IS A RELIABILITY RIDE?

The Yorkshire Reliability Rides are a long-established highlight to the counties cycling calendar. Originally set up as Ron's Reliable Five, the series has expanded to eight events with AlbaRosa taking on one of the legs.

Reliability Ride is not exclusive to Yorkshire. Nationwide, a Reliability Ride is a long-standing winter tradition. It's known as a test of a cyclist’s reliability and that of their bike coming out of the winter period. The emphasis is on fitness, self-reliance and navigational skills, although they are also used by competitive cyclists for training ahead of the racing season.

WHAT HAPPENS ON A RELIABILITY RIDE?

Reliability rides are for all abilities. Some reliability rides will set riders off in groups of average speed varying from 20mph to 12mph with the fastest riders leaving first. Others have no organised start, with riders setting off when they choose and riding with whomever they choose.

Traditionally the route is not signposted but a basic route map or description may be provided. Nowadays GPS files are available and you'll find all the Yorkshire series routes below. 

Riders then enjoy coffee and cake at the finish point. A reliability ride is a great way to meet and ride with new cyclists from different groups and clubs or to test your fitness against old rivals. 

There are no feed stations, timing chips or souvenir t-shirts etc. The ride is not a race. It takes place on open roads without marshals.  It is imperative that participants ride responsibly and in accordance with the Highway Code.
