About the Event

Info for Riders

The Ride

Group format will be similar to Thursday night chain gang (although this is not an APR!) with the the slowest group away first at roughly 10:15 and time splits of 3 mins between each group.

Groups should not exceed more than 12 riders. You are advised to ride according to your current form and ability. Groups will be based on the average speed you envisage covering the route. You will be asked to select which group you wish to ride in nearer the time of the event.

Group 1 - 14mph
Group 2 - 15mph
Group 3 - 16mph
Group 4 - 17mph
Group 5 -  18mph
Group 6 - 19mph
Group 7 - 20mph


MFCC are organising the ride through British Cycling who will provide insurance for the event. It is important to remind riders that it will be insured and risk assessed under the non-competitive event category. These events are informal and social in nature and take place on the public highway without marshals, signs, race commissaires or support vehicles. It is essential therefore that you all look after each other, ride sensibly and follow the Highway Code at all times.

Which Bike?

It's February and it's still winter. Your winter bike with good mudguards please. Many of the roads on the route are used by farm vehicles and are likely to be wet and muddy. The weather could potentially be bad so warm, waterproof gear is essential.

Afterwards

We have booked Muir of Ord Village Hall for a blether, a cup of tea and a wee spread.

The Cost

We are asking only for a small nominal fee of £2.50 per rider to cover the insurance costs.   

See you there!
