You need to practice skills to maintain them, and that’s where group runs come in, giving you a chance to ride with, and watch other skilled riders.
These runs will aim to make legal progress, where safe to do so, and it can help some riders improve the progress aspect of riding. The drop off/marker system is used to ensure no one gets lost. It’s all about getting out on your bike and having fun.
You will also have other riders to chat to at refreshment stops.
Group rides may be part or full day.
