Along with the different speed group Saturday morning rides we have introduced a training focused ride for members that want to improve or re-gain performance in preparation for Sportives or events later in the year. These rides have been designed by our Performance Officer (also a triathlon coach) in conjunction with our Ride Coordinator.

For faster riders and club racers the early (7:00am) Saturday ride has recently included riders from other clubs. Notably Alice Lethbridge the Cycling Time Trial Women Best British All-Rounder along with other national level racers. The early ride is a great way for like minded riders to team up/chain-gang around the Chilterns challenging terrain.
