About the event
Our Sunday bashes are one of our most popular road rides ideal for the budding road cyclist. We have a variety of routes heading out towards Rugby, Southam and Helidon with the occasional unique event thrown in. The Strava routes and segments can be found here.
Distance - 25-35 miles (40 - 56 km)
Speed - 18-25 mph (29-40 kph)
The Sunday Bash is all about working as a team, there are generally 3-5 groups of 6-8 riders split on ability and the start times are staggered so that all teams should finish at the same time. The fastest team departs last and are then chasing the other teams trying not to get caught.
We treat the ride out of Leamington Spa (to the town sign) as a warm up and into Leamington Spa (from the town sign) as a cool down. The rides are not races, although they are designed to give you a taste of road racing, trust us when we say these are fun.
- Routes may change last minute due to road works etc, please see the Facebook page on Saturday for any updates and futher changes may be made by the groups on Sunday morning.
- We would expect that you could average 17 mph (27 kph) over 20 miles (32 km) to ride with the slowest group. If you are unsure or you cannot hold this speed we would recommend you try the Easy Friday Night Social Ride or Saturday Social Road Rides to help introduce you.
