New for summer Thursdays....

Role on those glorious summer evenings is what we say.  In fact DCC members have been calling out for, and who can argue against that!

 The aim is to get a good workout in for A, B and C riders.  The rides may well be followed by some social rehydration and general chin-wag.   

  • ‘C group rides at 16-18 mph. On a route that varies week to week. Please check our Facebook Group for the announced route. 
  • ‘B group’ riding at 18-20 mph average. Fixed route each week. 
  • ‘A group’ riding at 20+ (how much over 20mph depends on the riders) Fixed route each week.
  • All groups Depart from Droitwich Lido Car Park at 18:20 prompt.
  • The A and B group also pick-up in Crowle (opposite the pub) at around 18:35 to 18:40.  A & B groups ride together as far as Flyford Flavell.
