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: For Garmin Zumo 390LM and 590LM users. Please make sure you set all of the waypoints on the route to shaping points.
To do this, double click on the route in Basecamp and right click on any waypoint that is not marked “won’t alert” and set it to “Don’t alert on arrival”. This should stop the GPS sending you round in circles if you fail to precisely cross the waypoint.

|Weds 28th October||19:30||A visit from Andy Bishop of ‘Fullfattours‘.
WHAM Member Tony Reusser has just returned from an epic tour of the USA with Andy. It looks like such a good trip that we asked Tony to invite the organiser along for our October Club night.
Quote from Tony below:-
‘Hi All, after an enthusiastic show of hands at our last Natter night, I can confirm that Andy Bishop would be delighted to give us a presentation, on Wednesday 28th October, about the “Fullfattour” he organises and leads in the USA. For me it was the trip of a life time and if you eventually join him on one of his epic adventures from New York to San Fransisco and back again, you will not be disappointed. Andy is featured in two of the pics below and yes he does the trip on a GSX-R!!’
Held at the Falcon in Bromyard. Please arrive at 19:15 for a 19:30 start.
