Cycle Lead Calender 2015

Revitalised Sunday Cycling

Sunday Bike Leads _ Click link
Starting from this coming Sunday 8th February (and subject to weather conditions) the club will be running two cycling groups again. We now have 22 club members who have volunteered to lead rides and so our ability to provide two rides every week will be consistent.
A copy of the cycle lead rota can be viewed on the MVH web site.
The two rides can be defined as;
A faster / longer group – This will typically be cycling faster than 15mph average speed (adjusted to suit those attending) and will typically cover routes between 40 – 60 miles.
A shorter / slower group – This will typically be cycling slower than 15mph average speed (adjusted to suit those attending) and will typically cover routes between 30 – 50 miles.
For both rides the distances ridden are likely to be shorter in the Autumn / Winter months with mileage increasing as the season and member’s fitness progresses.
Please note: The lead cyclist on each ride will keep the group together adjusting the speed to the slowest rider. No one will be left behind
It is likely that most rides will start from Barton Marina at 9am each Sunday morning. However, so as to provide more variety some cycle leads may choose to start their rides from a different location and this will be advertised in the club newsletter and on Facebook with as much notice as possible. Where we can, details of the next ride (distance and location) will also be provided during the week before.
In order to make this a success we need as many riders to attend as possible so please give it a go.

Repton Christmas Dates

Repton pool will be closed from the 23rd December until the 5th January.


This means that the last MVH Repton swim of 2014 will be on Saturday 20th December, and the first swim of 2015 will be on Saturday 10th January. This will be followed by the AGM.


Have a merry Christmas everyone, and see you all in the new year!!!!
