Autumn temperatures look to have finally arrived and a few more legs will no doubt start to be covered up! As usual we have three routes this week. All routes head south west in the direction of Sherborne. The White Group don’t quite make it, taking a short cut through the Caundles rejoining the longer routes at Pleck.

The Pink route passes through Sherborne, Yetminster and Lyons Gate. The Blues head to Boyes Hill and Glanvilles Wootton. The routes then wind their way back to Gillingham.

Who will get back to the cafe first?!

Meet at 9.00 am at the Wheels car park, Station Road, Gillingham. Please ensure you download your chosen route to your GPS device, and remember to bring your ride essentials. All rides finish at the cafe for coffee, cake and a catch up.

Pink Route: 89.2kms, 966 m elevation – est speed 28 kmh / 17.5 mph +

Blue Route: 73.5 km, 733 m elevation – est speed 24 kmh / 15 mph

White Route: 63.9 km, 642 m elevation – est speed 20 kmh / 12 mph

All rides are no drop rides but please select a group suited to your ability! There is obviously nothing stopping a faster group doing a shorter route or a slower group doing a longer route if they wish!

If you have ridden more than a couple of times with us, we do expect you to become a member of the club.

For those who have issues downloading their routes, here’s the guide for a Garmin device and here’s the guide for a Wahoo device.
