SCC CLUB RIDES

Southport Cycling Club Rides

The information provided below is intended to help riders select a ride most suited to their ability and needs. If you have not ridden with us before and you’re not sure which ride is most suitable for you, just drop us an email or message us through our Facebook group and we will contact you for a chat (you can email us through the ‘Contact’ page of the website). Coming to visit us at our Club House in Victoria Park  Rotten Row in Southport on Mondays from 7:30 pm is also a great place to start – click here for location of our club house.

If you have not ridden with a group before we have some helpful hints in our “Guide to Group Etiquette”

 

Weekday and Sunday Club Rides

As a guide, the Club Ride is suitable to anyone who would average 13-16 mph on a 30/40 mile flat route with favourable weather conditions.  Club Rides always include a stop at a local café. Whilst these rides are mostly 30/40 miles in length there are occasions when the distance covered is increased. These rides are great for newcomers to learn their group riding skills. If lots of riders of mixed ability arrive they separate groups may be formed to accommodate them with the stronger group off first. 

Arrangements for club rides:

Day Time Meeting Point
Week days 9:30 am Criffel Stone opposite Banks Crossens Pumping Station
Sunday 9:30 am Criffel Stone opposite Banks Crossens Pumping Station

 

Saturday Intermediate Ride

The Intermediate Ride is aimed at riders who want to, and have the ability to, ride at a quicker pace than the Club Ride.  As a guide, this ride should be suitable to anyone who would average around 15 to 17 mph on a 50 mile flat route with favourable weather conditions. The Inters Ride will typically be 50 to 60 miles long and will often involve some hill climbing. There will usually be a cafe stop on route. The Inters Ride will be ridden as a group with rolling regrouping when required. 

*A separate ride may also go from the Criffel Stone at 9:30 am on Saturdays.

Arrangements for intermediate rides:

Day Time Meeting Point
Saturday 9:30  Criffel Stone opposite Banks Crossens Pumping Station

 

Sunday Blackgate Lane Ride (Recommend for experienced riders)

Generally the SCC Blackgate Lane Ride is suitable to more experienced riders who can ride at 18+mph on a 50 mile flat route with favourable weather conditions.  However if riders of mixed ability turn up, the speed will be adjusted to accommodate them or riders will be split into groups based on ability, with the faster group heading off first. The Blackgate Lane Sunday ride will typically be 60 to 80 miles long with some longer rides in the summer.  There will be a lunch time cafe stop and we will always sit up to regroup when required. The route is agreed at the meeting point. Typically rides head north of Preston to the Fylde/Trough of Bowland areas

Arrangements for Blackgate Lane Rides

Day Time Meeting Point
Sunday 9:30 Junction of Blackgate Lane and A565.

 

How to find out what is happening

Clearly there will be occasions when things change e.g. rides may be cancelled because of the weather, or additional rides may be organised.  Whilst keeping everyone informed of everything is probably impossible you can get a lot of ‘live’ information through the following media:

  • SCC Club Website
  • ‘Southport Cycling  Club Official Group’ Facebook Page                   
  • SCC WhatsApp group   

If you wish to become a member of either of these last two groups please contact Geoff Caton: [email protected]
