York’s Wednesday Wheelers

Cycling in Yorkshire
'ti'n't just fo't' Tour

Welcome to the "York" Wednesday Wheelers.
Our regular Wednesday rides normally set out from York's Exhibition Square at 09.30 prompt. Runs generally consist of three legs (of between 60 and 90 minutes each) interspersed with organised stops for elevenses and lunch, though during the longer days of summer there is sometimes an extra afternoon stop.   Participation in the complete ride is entirely optional! The choice of distances can be adjusted to suit your fitness level (our average speed is around 12 mph). Our riders are free to make their own way to the designated elevenses or lunch stops to meet up with the rest of the group and to depart at any point to make their own way home, thereby tailoring the distance, ride time and exposure to the elements as desired. Our leaders and riders protocol is intended to ensure that every ride is enjoyable and safe for all. After looking at our runs list, you may still think the distances are too great, don't worry! You'll be amazed how quickly your fitness improves with regular participation, as long as you don't try to do too much too soon. Consider contacting the run's leader.

Recently, the increase in our numbers has lead to the debate: should we be forming a second group? Some of our number already operate an ad hock 'B' section, based in the Ryedale area, using e-mail to run its own small unofficial group. If your location makes this a better choice, consider contacting Mike at FMWFielding@aol.com to be added to his mailing list.   Hopefully this may lead to the reformation of an official CTC North Yorkshire Ryedale Section! If you should decide to join us we trust that your involvement will be long and enjoyable, although like most organisations it is a case of the more you put in, the more you get out!

The CTC has a page on their website that has advice on group riding, it's well worth a look!

If you consider yourself a complete novice, we would direct you to a group of friends who ride from the Millennium Bridge every First Friday of the month. Some progressed to a longer ride on the last Friday in each month, which followed a unique double distance format. From now on the longer rides will be linked with the Morrison's Chimney rides. The shorter rides are to continue as before.
