Sunday Rides

Sundays at 9am

Starting from Thornes Park (Holmfield Arms entrance), with different routes and destinations each week.

These are group rides, and we don’t leave people behind. If you find the pace too high please SPEAK UP so the speed can be adjusted or the route altered to get you home safely. We aim to publish the route maps before the ride, so people have the opportunity to download the route to their head-unit if they prefer.

Café stop at around half distance with an optional final stop at local Wakefield area pub (details are included in each individual ride below).

Occasionally, the route might be changed from the one listed, particularly when the ride is unsuitable for the weather conditions.

For the safety and enjoyment of you and the rest of the group, we do ask all those planning to participate in any of the rides to read the group riding technique page: http://calderclarion.co.uk/group-riding/
