Saturday's club ride is to the Black Isle.

The route follows a figure of 8 through Munlochy, Culbokie, Cromarty, Rosemarkie, Munlochy, Tore and Redcastle. The distance is around 66 miles/106 km. The cafe stop is at Crofters in Rosemarkie.

We ask that folk pre select groups, either 1, 2 or 3, based on an average speed. Please note that speeds are a rough guide, and may indeed be slower or faster depending on conditions. We will endeavour to accommodate your group selection, dependent on rider numbers and availability of ride leaders. For the safety of all riders we operate a no-drop policy on Saturday rides.

Group 1 - 16-18mph / 26kph-29kph
Group 2 - 14-16mph / 22kph-26kph
Group 3 - 13-15mph / 21kph-24kph

If you want to challenge yourself then you can select a faster group than your usual but with the option of dropping down after the coffee stop.
The route for this Saturday starts and finishes at Fairways. The forecast for Saturday suggests that it’s going to be fairly warm, but with a chance of showers. Details of the route can be found below, please download to your bike computer if you have one:

The expectation is that anyone signing up for Group 3 will be following this slightly shorter route, with a little less climbing (around 55 miles/88 km):

https://www.strava.com/routes/2990709073197747382

All those wishing to join the ride need to post before 7pm on Friday evening when the ride will be closed.

Please meet at Fairways roundabout just off the distributor road at 0850hrs for a 0900hrs departure.

Riders should ensure their bikes are mechanically sound before attending a club ride and that the following minimum spares / tools are carried.

2x inner tubes
2x Co2 canisters (& dispenser) or appropriate hand pump
adhesive patches
Multi tool
Quick link (appropriate for your chain speed)
Tyre levers
Rear Light

Hope to see you Saturday,

Steve

That looks like a fun route. Planning on cycling in and biking back when we go through Tore, if that's allright?
See you Saturday.

Hi Richard,

Sure, no problem. Could you wait at the far end of the large car park on the front (opposite end to the loos) and the group you'll be riding with will give you a shout as they approach.
