Club runNot too far and with a few hilly bits to keep everyone interested. There’s even a cafe stop around half distance (don’t forget your cake money!). No one gets dropped and we regroup as often as needed. It would be great to see some of the riders who have only made it out once or twice – we could make the ride Heanor Clarion’s very own Critical Mass style gathering!

Here’s the route:

There’s no reason not to be at Heanor Market Place for 9:15 this Sunday, but in case you were thinking of sending a sick note, here are some answers to popular excuses:

It’s not far enough. Why not go out on Saturday and use this ride as a recovery session. Alternatively, come as far as the cafe then head off on your own.

It’s too far. This could be the opportunity you’re looking for to up your mileage. There’s nothing like a challenge, and doing it with a group makes it so much easier.

It’s too flat. You should have been out last weekend!

It’s too hilly. It’s Derbyshire!

I’ve never ridden with a group. Now’s the time to have a go! What could possibly go wrong?

I’m not fast enough. We regroup as often as needed. No one gets dropped.

I’m not a member. It doesn’t matter – just come along for the ride.

Don’t forget that the route takes in the ever popular sprint up Eaton Bank!

See you there.

    Well stated Matt 🙂

    Is anyone from the Mansfield area, who may have room for a spare body and bike, driving over for this ride? Failing that, what is the estimated time of arrival at the B6013 – B5035 junction just after Oakerthorpe as I could possibly meet the group there?

    • MattR says:

      It’s about 12 miles to Oakerthorpe from Heanor. We’ll be going at a very steady pace so, all being well, we should be at Oakerthorpe for around 10:15.

    Thanks Matt,

    I will be leaving mansfield and probably riding at an even steadier pace ….. it’s starting to sound like one of those maths questions involving trains that we used to get at school. 🙂 Hopefully I will catch you guys. Cheers.
