When – Every Saturday throughout the entire year (unless stated otherwise on our calendar)
What time – 9-30am
Where – The Old Forge, John Street car park, Randalstown
Other information – Saturday’s routes should be around thirty-five to fifty-five miles in length and will be run at a fairly relaxed pace – expect averages around 15 mph; maybe a little more.
Not ones to ignore our recent traditions, we (thoroughly) enjoy a coffee/bun stop on Saturdays. With a large selection of coffee shops and cafés nearby it would be rude of us not to support the local economy with our bellies. Besides, we need to replace all the calories we burn.
Saturdays should provide a good ‘bridge’ for anyone who would like to go out on Sundays but wishes to get used to group riding and building up distance first. They are also a splendid run in their own right and well worthwhile even if you never intend to go out with Old Bleach on Sundays.
If you wish to come out with Old Bleach but are inexperienced in cycling with a club/group, we recommend Saturdays or Wednesday Sevens – obviously, for the latter, during a period when they are running (see our calendar for confirmation) – to come along and introduce oneself on.
