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.

Sunday 14th August

 

08:30 WHAM  Day Ride – Welsh Lakes

Starts at the OK Diner in Leominster @ 09:00. Leg 1 takes us through Presteigne to join everyone’s favourite Welsh A road, the A483 at Llanbister, then Newtown, Llandloes and the first stop at the Red Kite Kiosk. (68 Miles).

Leg 2 Follows the brilliant B road around Clywedoc Reservoir up to the A470. We turn right at Dinas Mawddy and head up into the hills around the West side of Lake Vyrnwy, The roads and scenery up here are some of the best in Wales. We then skirt around Lake Bala (stop in the town for fuel). and head for the Visitor Centre at Lake Vyrnwy. (62 Miles).

Leg 3 winds it way through the borders to some more familiar roads ending up at the Teapot Cafe at Mortimers Cross. (54 Miles).

NOTE: We need to try to avoid taking over the carpark at the OK Diner so please park considerately in one area. We are also potentially putting off Customers so please purchase a coffee from the Diner when you arrive so that they get some revenue for the inconvenience (please don’t buy your coffee from the petrol station). Thanks.
