Many cyclists enjoy the freedom of the open road, with a chance to take in the sights and sounds around them, without the pressure of the need to race or get somewhere on a deadline... To cater for this more leisurely pastime B&DCC intend to gain enough local rider support to make these rides a regular feature on our Calendar, and to form a formal CTC group in 2011
Our summer rides are split into two types
The shorter rides typically last around 90 minutes to 2 hours , taking in around 15 miles.
Longer rides typically last between 4 hours (45 miles) and six hours (60 miles)
In all cases the rides meet at the Cenotaph just off Market Place in Bolsover town centre (outside Bella Blue)
Riders should be prepared and carry a puncture repair kit or spare inner tube, simple tools, lights for evening rides and a rainproof jacket
