FROM 31ST DECEMBER 2019 THIS GROUP WILL BE PUT "ON ICE" WHILST WE TRIAL AN AMALGAMATION WITH VELO FORTE. THE ETHOS AND FORMAT OF AMICI WILL BE CARRIED OVER TO VELO FORTE SO PLEASE DO HAVE A LOOK AT THE WEB PAGE FOR THAT GROUP, AND GIVE ME A CALL IF YOU EVER FANCY RIDING OUT WITH US.
This group is for riders who want a purposeful ride at a steady pace averaging between 14-16mph over the whole distance. Generally, rides will be between 50 and 60 miles and include a coffee stop. Having said that it is not uncommon to go on a longer jaunt in the Summer but cut down the miles just a little in the Winter if the weather is a tad bad. We operate a "no-drop" policy, but aim to ride with as few other stops along the way as possible.
We consider ourselves a friendly supportive bunch and readily welcome new members to our ranks.
The group will serve as a useful stepping stone for riders who want to progress from the Inbetweeners up to the faster groups.
Generally the group will start out from the new Marden Sports Ground on the Maidstone Road at 0915hrs each Saturday but the starting point may change, dependent on what the ride leader has got planned. Whenever possible, downloadable routes, constructed using the club's RideGPS account, will be posted on the group forum. Please check the ride calendar for week by week ride information.
The main expectations of group members are as follows;
