SOUTHPORT CC RIDES

The club organises 3 types of ride and works in conjunction with Pedal Away to provide rides for all abilities. The information provided below is intended to help riders select a ride most suited to their ability and needs. If you’re not sure which ride is most suitable for you, just drop us an email and we will contact you for a chat (you can email us through the ‘Contact’ page of the website).

Club Ride

As a guide, the Club Ride is suitable to anyone who would average 14-15 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.

Arrangements for club rides:

Day Time Meeting Point
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 9:30 Plough Bus Stop
Wednesday 9:30 Ainsdale Police Station and Plough Bus Stop
Saturday 9:30 Plough Bus Stop
Sunday (except 3rd Sunday) 9:30 Plough Bus Stop
3rd Sunday each month

A longer ride of between 60 – 80 miles.  Details of these rides are published on the club website, Facebook and WhatsApp

9:00 See website for arrangements as these vary according to the ride.

 

Inters Ride

The Inters Ride (aka 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 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.

Arrangements for intermediate rides:

Day Time Meeting Point
Thursday 18:00 Pines/Ainsdale Police Station

The start time for this ride is approximate because individuals may be delayed getting home from work etc. Information can be found each week via the SCC WhatsApp group.

This is a 40/50 mile ride with no café stop.

Saturday 8:30 SCC Club House.

Details of the route to be followed are published in advance on the Cub website, Facebook, and the SCC WhatsApp group.

Sunday Various Check WhatsApp for details.

Sporting Ride

The Sporting Ride is suitable to anyone who would average 18+mph on a 50 mile flat route with favourable weather conditions.  The Sporting Ride on a Sunday will typically be 60 to 80 miles long with some longer rides in the summer.  There will always be a cafe stop to replenish food stocks, drinks bottles and to discuss the route home.   We will always sit up to regroup when required.

Arrangements for Sporting Rides

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

The route is agreed at the meeting point. Typically rides head north of Preston to the Fylde/Trough of Bowland areas.

2019 Rides Calendar 

In addition to the regular weekly rides described above the following rides are either organised by the club or frequently supported by SCC riders.

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]
