(For younger readers a marathon is a mass participation 40km run, Older readers will course know that it is really a caramel chocolate bar with peanuts in the middle)
There will be no charge but the nature of these rides is that a higher level of self-sufficiency is required. This means riders should be capable of safe return if they become separated from the group and that suitable clothing and equipment are used. Thus there should be no new participants without prior agreement.
The rides are not coached sessions and there is not an organiser with legal responsibility for other riders. A club ride is simply a group of riders on a joint excursion on the open road which may include sections on busy roads and descents. Riders participate at their own risk and are expected to obey the Highway Code at all times.
Please ensure your bikes are road worthy this includes using tyres that are not worn or suffering cuts and nicks. Bad weather cancellations will be posted on the website by 9am
