Guidelines for Ride Leaders
Meet: 0915 Dragon Road Lorry Park – next to Asda, central Harrogate
120 to 180 miles
Plan your route – no more than 90 minutes to morning coffee stop
Another 90 minutes (max) to lunch stop
Aim to finish between 1600 & 1700 – Choose a convenient place to end your ride (e.g. Ripley Car Park, Stump Cross Cafe etc)
Keep it Simple – not too many junctions. A complicated route spoils the flow
Pre Ride your route, with your Tail Ender. Remember a large group will be slower than the two of you.
Suss out coffee & lunch stops – can they cater for 20 or so riders?
Let Secretary have a note of the route – a basic route with stops noted
