At our recent AGM it was suggested by one of our members that there could be interest in a TVC gravel ride and we agreed! So, on Saturday 25th of March our first gravel event leaves Tickhill Cricket Club at 09:00. The total ride distance is 41 miles, there's a 5 mile ride into Blyth where the gravel route starts in ernest with 31 miles of country tracks, bridleways, quiet roads, and a country park then 5 miles back to Tickhill. Averaging 10 mph the pace will be leisurely and no one will be dropped, the objective being enjoyment rather than Srava medals. Also, this being a Tickhill Velo event, there will be coffee and cake! Other routes are already planned for Saturday mornings, once a month initially, with the potential to add more if the interest is there.
If you fancy giving one of our gravel rides a go the details are posted on our website so keep checking in. There won't be any technical stuff or jumps requiring special skills, just a robust bike, ideally with 35mm tyres and some biscuit money for the café!
