Reliability Ride

A great chance to test your early season form, reliability rides are meant to test a riders ability to time the ride in order to get back with an average speed achieved. They are not a race or a sportive type event. All riders will have a set of instructions on how to get around the route on the day.  Afterwards there will be opportunity for refreshments, cake and drinks, and lots of socialising.
