I’ll start out with the customary big ride disclaimer, as it’s important for these big rides. : our big rides are not for the fainthearted and they are really hilly, tough but ultimately enjoyable rides. We have a lunch stop but they are longer, hillier and slightly faster than our standard rides. If you’re unsure then please speak to us and come to a standard ride first. We’re not ones to be too specific about speed but ideally shouldn’t be much slower than around 12mph average around this sort of course, as otherwise they just take way too long and it’ll be a real tough day in the saddle.
