Monthly Family Ride - Sundays 10 am - 12pm
In addition, we run a family ride one Sunday each month, this starts at 10 a.m. from the Old Bridge in Ilkley and generally goes to the Cavendish at Bolton Abbey for hot drinks, bacon butties and ice creams.using the towpath under Bolton Bridge for safety.
See our ICC calendar on the right of each page for family ride dates. Usually April - October.
Sunday MTB rides - will be posted here
All rides start from the Old Bridge in Ilkley. The Thursday night rides start at 7 p.m. and the Sunday rides start at 8.30 a.m. Both the Thursday night and the Sunday rides run throughout the year (a good set of lights are required for the winter Thursday evening rides). The MTB rides, and occasionally the road rides, may start in a different location and at a different time, if this is the case, the location and time will be listed on the website under ‘Rides’.
A Rides – The A rides are generally for the most experienced and fastest riders usually riding at a speed of 18 miles/hour. On a Thursday night the A ride will be approximately 30 miles long and on a Sunday the A ride will often cover 50 miles, sometimes going for even longer rides covering up to 70 miles.
B Rides – The B rides are for the intermediate rider and are not as fast as the A ride. The speed will generally be 14-16 miles per hour. If there are a lot of riders on the B ride, the ride is split into B1 and B2, with B1 going slightly faster than B2, but usually along the same route. On a Thursday night the B ride is approximately 23 miles long and a Sunday the group covers about 40 miles.
C Rides – The C rides go at the most leisurely pace with a speed of 10-12 miles per hour. Often the group will be split into C1 and C2, with C1 heading off on a longer and faster ride. On a Thursday night, the C1 group will cover approximately 17 miles, while the C2 group will head out towards Bolton Abbey, covering about 13 miles at a much steadier pace. On a Sunday, the C ride will be about 20 miles long and often include a cafe stop.
|Sunday 2nd June||MTB ride - Gisburn Forest. Details to follow
MTB Rides – The MTB rides occur on a more ad-hoc basis and can cover a wide range of distances and technical grades. Please refer to the ‘Rides’ page to see when the next MTB ride is and whether is it graded Easy, Moderate or Difficult.
The routes for all rides are listed on the ‘Rides’ page of the website and are updated on a weekly basis.
Please email Euan Mackay at email@example.com if you would like to lead any road or MTB rides or get some more information on being a ride leader.
Ride Etiquette & Advice on cycling in a group
We encourage the wearing of Cycling helmets on club rides.
Riders should ensure that their bikes are in a roadworthy and safe condition, with appropriate lighting and high-visibility clothing as necessary.
Riders should come prepared and able to for example fix punctures, but help would be provided by the ride leader if possible
Club Rides will be broken into a A, B and C group (with A the fastest).
Each club ride will have a leader and preferably a “sweeper”.
The leader will not necessarily have to ride at the front, but will be familiar with the route and have some cycling experience.
The “sweeper” will ride at the back of the group and make sure riders do not become detached from the main group.
