The Sunday Ride group meets at the Bungay Buttercross every Sunday at 9:00am during British Summer Time (last Sunday in March to second-last Sunday in October) and 9:30 AM during Greenwich Mean Time (Last Sunday in October to second-last Sunday in March).
We usually ride as two groups at differing speeds to suit the preference and ability of the riders. The routes are planned so that all groups should meet at a cafe stop at about the half-way point. This is usually at about 11.00 a.m.
The average speed is 13-14mph for the standard group and 16-17mph for the intermediates. Depending on conditions and numbers present groups may be amalgamated, but we always ensure that all are able to ride at a pace that suits them. Nobody is left behind, and it is easy to swap between groups at the cafe stop if necessary.
Routes are usually in the 40 to 50 mile range, and are usually published in advance in the events section of this site, through the club’s Strava group and on the club’s facebook page. If a ride has to be called-off, perhaps through dangerous road conditions, then notice is given through the same channels.
We also in a Wednesday club ride starting 09:30 at the Buttercross. The speed is 13-15 MPH but we will always set the pace to suit - so no one is left struggling. We typically cover 30 miles.
