Saturday Morning Social Rides
Saturday Social Rides (SSR)s are non-drop rides, departing from Christchurch Park, Westerfield Road Entrance at 9am sharp. Please arrive at 8.45am to allow time to find the right group.
The expected pace of each group will be called out prior to the ride, which are normally 14-16mph, 16-18mph and 19mph+. Please choose according to your ability, if you’re unsure, err on the side of caution and go with the slower group; you can always swap groups at the cafe stop.
You’ll benefit from the aerodynamics of riding in a group and find it easier to ride at a higher pace than normal. All groups head to the same cafe stop around half way where we’ll eat, drink and talk about bikes.
Note: You should be self-sufficient – have a pump, spare inner tube, tyre levers and a puncture repair kit (and know how to use it!), money for cakes/coffee etc.
Note: We welcome new members to our club runs, to give you an opportunity to find out what we’re like and whether you want to be a member.
If you wish to come along, please turn up at the start and make yourself known to the members who will direct you to ride leaders.
We expect that non-members join the club after a maximum of 2 club runs.
If you are unsure whether you are ready to join us for club rides, we can recommend some other groups in Ipswich until you are ready:
