    What Is Average Speed And How Do You Pick The Right Group

    What Is Average Speed And How Do You Pick The Right Group

    The questions we probably get asked the most revolve around average speed and which group is the 'right' one for people to join on a ride. Not only that, but the fear of picking the 'wrong' group or being worried about the level of the ride is probably the biggest cause of people not joining a ride in the first place. And this isn't just new and beginner riders; we get questions from experienced riders who are also trying to gauge the pace of the ride too. It's big deal, so we thought we'd cover some of the main concerns, as well as try and explain what each of the group levels really mean.

    It is worth saying at this point that none of the below is designed to put people off from joining a ride or even the group they want to join. It's merely a guide to try and help you into the right group or ride for your level, and then give you options when you do feel ready to push yourself a bit more. If you are at all unsure about what group to join then please always email us or message us on social media. We're aways happy to have a chat and work out what's best for you.

    A Dirty Wknd in Sardinia - Ride Report

    A Dirty Wknd in Sardinia - Ride Report

    "... If you find yourself alone, riding in green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium..."
    Maximus Decimus Meridius, The Gladiator.

    It's roughly 12:30pm on Sunday, and Russell Crowe's speech from the beginning of Gladiator has just come into my head. I am riding through open fields with the sun on my face and the wind on my back.

    Having just climbed La Speranza, a 5km climb at an average of 10% and total elevation gain of 500 metres, in 30 degree heat; metaphorically I feel like I might have died! However once the pain had ended, and the epic gradient relented, the road extended before me invitingly, I knew that I wasn't in fact in Elysium, but in cycling heaven. As per Russell's instructions; I certainly wasn't troubled.

    Before I romanticise anymore about Sunday's climbing, let me go back to the beginning of the weekend and start from the top.
