Club Runs

2020

Sunday club runs

We meet every Sunday at Yeovil Recreation Ground, Mudford Road Entrance (at the end of Chilton Grove) for a Club run.

There are two or three runs, we all meet at 9 o'clock, and the rides depart at about 9.10. The groups try to meet for a coffee stop around 10:45 and then return to Yeovil between 12:30 and 1pm.

Thursday club runs

We now have a long Thursday ride (it used to run under the auspices of the now defunct Blackmore Vale and Yeo Valley CTC group). The rides are long, but not very fast by Sunday morning standards. The rides all start from Palmers Garden Centre at 9.30am. There is normally a designated leader arranged beforehand. Some riders may be there from 9am for pre-ride coffee. In the summer the rides last all day (9.30 – 5.00pm) and cover 60 miles and above. In the winter it's generally a morning ride of around 40 miles.

Runs calendar

Below is a list of the Thursday, Sunday, Breeze and Away-day rides. Although the destination is predetermined, it may be changed on the morning if the weather conditions or other circumstances dictate. I suggest riders carry a bike lock (and a key - ED!) on the Thursday rides as it cannot be guaranteed that coffee/lunch will be spent with the bikes in sight. Check the club Facebook page for any updates. Note that the information on the next rides is mirrored on the home page for ease of access.

YCC runs are now on again

We have resumed club runs, they are in a different format for the time being and will only continue if riders behave in a responsible manner. Please take the time to read the latest version of the club rules covering the provisions in place while social distancing measures are in force. In brief:

On the day:

Do not come on the ride, or even go to the start, if you are showing any symptoms of Covid-19

Groups will be limited to six riders

You should form into small groups when you arrive at the Sports Ground, each clearly separated from the other

There will be several destinations being suggested to avoid a mass gathering at the coffee stop

When at the coffee stop, please follow any instructions given by the cafe staff and continue to observe social distancing
