About

Taster Road ride for Exeter University Cycling Club. Meet at the bottom of Forum Hill (Stocker Road) by the roundabout for 1:30pm, with departure soon afterwards. We're expecting a large turn out for the ride, so we'll split everyone into at least three different groups, loosely based on ability. The ride groups will be as follows: -> Casual - 15 miles @14-16mph average -> Medium - 25 miles @ 16-18mph average -> Fast - 40 miles @18-20mph average Please sign up for the ride that you think best suits your cycling ability, bearing in mind that Devon is a hilly region! Signing up to the correct ride is super important as it allows us to plan ahead and to allocate ride leaders in advance. With that said, each group that leaves Forum Hill will be led by a club committee member who will have good route knowledge, and will guide each group on a pre-made course on local roads. All rides are also NO-DROP, meaning the main group will wait for any stragglers where necessary. We also have TWO hire bikes available for this ride, one is size small (5ft 2 to 5ft 7), and the other is a large (5ft 7+). These can be booked by selecting the relevant hire ticket for £4. These are strictly allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. IMPORTANT: -> Please ensure that your bicycle is in good working order -> Bring your own tools if possible, (e.g. spare innertube, allen keys etc...) -> Dress sensibly. One thing you'll quickly realise is that good weather in Exeter is not guaranteed, so make sure to check the forecast beforehand! -> Bring plenty of snacks and hydration. There will likely be a cafe stop, but try not to rely on this. -> WEAR A HELMET, or you won't be riding with us! Hopefully everything is covered here, but if you have any questions shoot us an email at [email protected] , or send us a DM on Facebook: (University of Exeter Cycling Club) or Instagram: @exeterunicyclingclub.
