Programme

Sunday rides: Unless indicated below, there is a WHAM ride every Sunday from our Worcester and Hereford start points. All full members are very welcome to join us, just show up half an hour before the planned departure time (9 am in summer time, 9:30 am winter time) and we’ll make sure you are allocated to a suitable riding group (we try to match pace and there is no pressure to ‘keep up’).

Our ride-outs are a chance to get together with other club members and move your riding on to the next level, there are usually experienced Observers on hand to give advice. We understand the problems that can arise from large groups and therefore limit groups to an average of 4 riders and use a system that enables everyone to ride at their own pace without being left behind. Just fancy a Sunday ride out on your own but don’t know where to go? Why not meet us at the cafe stop, approximate arrival times (and postcodes for your satnav) are posted below.

Note: Associate members please get your observer’s authority for Sunday rides other than the “First-Sunday-of-the-month”. Associate members and prospective members should make themselves known to a committee member if they wish to have an observed ride. Please see WHAM’s full ride-out policy here.

Please arrive at the start point with a full tank of fuel. _____________________________________________________________

You are deemed to be in control of your machine at all times.  Anyone taking part in our group rides is expected to comply with road traffic regulations.

Note: The routes below change from time to time as we adapt them for local road conditions, closures etc (and when we find better bends!). So, please ensure you download the route each week and don’t always rely on an older copy.

Note: Please find some guidelines for the downloading and configuration of routes, Garmin and Basecamp here.
