What is a Reliability Ride?

A reliability ride is a test of a cyclist’s reliability and that of their bike coming out of the winter period. It’s a test of fitness and form coming into the Spring. Reliability rides are for all abilities, from elite athletes to social spinners. It offers great motivation to push yourself over the approx 50 mile routes – when a lie in followed by an hour on the turbo may seem much more inviting. This takes place on open roads under regular traffic conditions so – for everyone’s safety – this is not a race! 🙂

Entry is £4 (paid on the day, the club will be making a donation to the Cyclists Defence Fund) there is a choice of two ride distances 80km and 50km (details below)
