Wednesday Evening Social Rides.
Wednesday evening rides have started. We meet at the Arena at 6:30pm. The usual 20-25 miles at a pace to suit whoever goes, nobody will be left behind. New members to the site welcome. Thinking about this one - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/11883861 Some climbing for about 7 miles, then a nice easy route home. Don't forget your lights for later on, as it'll be getting dark for the last part of the ride. Please post on Strava if you'll be going so you're advised if we change anything or cancel.
The Chairman's Challenge for 2022 has started, with the usual opening distance of 40 miles - to be covered by the 30th.

Strava Mileage Trophy 2022.
As there are no Covid related restrictions to cycling this year, the Strava Mileage Trophy will run for the full year, January 1st 2022 to December 31st 2022 inclusive. There will be a male & female trophy.
As in last year's competition, only road or MTB mileage is counted towards each member's annual total.
Mileage completed on turbo trainers, Zwift, spin classes, or any similar static device cannot therefore be included in mileage totals. Manual uploads are of course also excluded, as is any mileage completed on an ebike. A road ride is deemed to be a ride outdoors, in any country, on roads or MTB tracks which is recorded using a GPS device. Cheers, Dave.

Middleton Cycling Club
We arrange Club rides throughout the month, with our regular ride arranged on Sundays. The Sunday ride varies each week; sometimes a flat ride is arranged that will be completed at a faster pace and other weeks a hillier route will be chosen and this will likely be completed at a slower pace. Rides vary in distance, but are generally 40 – 70 miles long. We occasionally organise longer rides, these can be up to and sometimes in excess of 100 miles. In addition to the regular Sunday ride, members often provide details of a ride they intend to complete on other days, with an invitation for others to join in. Details for any ride we are running, including the date, time and meeting place, are posted on our Strava Discussion page (You’ll need a Strava account to see this).
In addition to the main Club rides, we also organise a ride for those new to cycling called the Easy Rider. Pace for this ride is slower, typically 10 – 12mph and distances are shorter, usually around 20 – 30 miles. These rides are organised twice monthly on Sundays and the date and meeting details can be found on the Strava Discussion page detailed above.
Particularly during the summer, as the nights are lighter, we often have a ride out on Wednesday evenings. Meet up is 6.30pm at Middleton Arena. We generally cover about 20 -25 miles at a medium pace. As with the other rides, confirmation that we’re going out will be posted on the Strava Discussion page.
