We're adding a fourth distance for our 24th Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials.  This time you can ride an Imperial Century, 100 miles or 160 kilometres, which we are organising as well as the 200K and the shorter rides.  This ride will take you east of Thaxted before you turn back to Stevenage.

The SSoSS rides are when the clocks change.  Come along and help us celebrate.

The rides are not races but they are a challenge.  For the Century you will need to average between 15 and 30 kilometres per hour from start to finish. There are check points at tea rooms and cafes to keep you on course and on time so you won't go hungry or thirsty.

Several hundred people enter the rides so please don't leave it too late.  We may run out of places and it really helps us when people enter in advance.

For local Cycling UK / CTC members all the rides count towards county medals and the Stevenage and North Hertfordshire "Blazing Saddles" competition.
