The Club rides each Sunday morning, starting from outside the Cheese and Grain, Market Yard, Frome, BA11 1BE at 09:00 departure and aiming to return by lunchtime or early afternoon.
We have two groups that leave the Cheese and Grain, a 9am group that cycles at a steady pace (average 12mph) and a 9.15am (averages 16mph) a group that cycles at a slightly quicker pace.
We average between 10-15 riders per week, sometimes more, of varying ages and abilities, and normally ride between 30 / 35 miles.
As our nickname suggests (CTC – Coffee and Tea-Cake Club) the most important part of the Sunday morning ride is the 11:00 stop, where we rest, chat and partake in the drinking of tea or coffee and the eating of tea cakes or something similar! We insist it must be highly calorific!
What else do we get up to?
- Some members participate in organised long distance Audax rides at weekends (seewww.aukweb.net for further details).
- During the spring / summer cycling season you will also find the occasional all day ride as well as a couple of off-road rides just to keep things interesting.
- During the long sunny summer evenings there is also the occasional Friday night pub ride.
- We are also supporting Frome’s Missing Link (See www.fromesmissinglink.org.uk for further details).
- An annual tour.
