Cycling with MSSC 19 Oct

Tandem cycling with merton sports and social club
Venue:

Date:
19th October 2019
Cost:
Free


Tandem Cycling with Merton Sport and Social Club

MSSC is based in Colliers Wood, London SW19.  The club has a fleet of tandems and  pair sighted front riders with vision impaired back riders for regular rides, mainly on quiet roads and trails.

We have enjoyed some great rides so far this year in varying types of weather!  Now that spring is in the air and the hours of daylight are extending, we are looking ahead and hoping to plan some all day rides plus some gentle evening excursions and even a weekend cycling trip, to make the most of the lighter, longer days.

MONTHLY SHORT AND LONG RIDES

Essentially, all you need to remember is that, as a general rule, the long ride is around 30 to 40 miles and is on the first Sunday, while the short ride is around 15 to 25 miles on the third Saturday.

Unless otherwise stated, all rides start at 8.30am from the Guardian Centre and include a refreshment stop.  Please endeavour to arrive promptly, so that the bikes can be prepared in good time for a 9.00 departure.  We TRY TO make it a priority to see that the long ride returns by 3.00pm and the short ride by 1.00pm, so waiting for latecomers to arrive can mean the ride has to be cut short.

MSSC Programme of Cycling rides 2019

Below are ride dates for the next few months of 2019  (S stands for short, L for long and E for evening). The all day rides will be at least 50 miles in length, with several refreshment stops, and will return early evening.

For more information and book a place, please Contact
Email: cycling@mssc.org.uk or visit our website: www.MSSC.org.uk for more information

Metro Blind Sport  would always advise contacting the event contact to confirm there have been no last-minute changes or cancellations

October:

  • Saturday 19th (S)

If you are a stoker, please email cycling@mssc.org.uk to book on to a ride as soon as possible, preferably with at least a fortnight’s notice.  Securing sufficient pilots tends to be a demanding task, and places on a ride will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  If you are a pilot, letting us know your availability well in advance is hugely helpful.  The ride organiser will confirm whether or not sufficient pilots are available by the Thursday before the ride; if you have not heard by then, please contact us to check your name is definitely on the list.

if you are willing to lead a ride or recommend a particular destination, please let us know, as we are keen to broaden our base of ride leaders and expand our repertoire of routes.

Look forward to hearing from you.

WEEKDAY EVENING RIDES

We are looking to run a weekly evening ride, probably on Wednesdays, starting around 6.30 pm  from the Guardian Centre and returning between 9.00 and 9.30pm.  However, we can only run these rides if we have enough willing pilots and ride leaders, who know of well-located pubs and the best route there and back!

Please get in touch if you would like to cycle on any Wednesday evening!
