Rides are posted on Meet Up. Most take place on a Saturday or Sunday, with some midweek in the summer. Rides start out from a variety of locations around Greater Manchester and the North West.A full description of each ride is on Meet Up. Don't hesitate to discuss the route with the ride leader, they always be happy to chat.
Introductory – for riders new to Team Glow or who would like to build confidence. These rides are over flat or undulating terrain and normally about 25 miles. Speed is adjusted according to the ability of the group. A typical ride is from Chorlton to Tatton Park and back. The ride leader is available to help with the best use of gears and brakes, and will also signpost introductory riders towards other rides within their ability.
Moderate - B – for riders or anyone wishing to build up distance and who can cope with a few hills. An example ride might be 30 - 40 miles at a speed of 10 - 12 mph on rolling terrain including short uphill and downhill sections.
Intermediate - C – for riders who want to go a little further and already have some hill confidence or are keen to develop. A typical ride would be about 50 miles. Speed will vary, maybe 12mph average (depending on terrain). If you are new to hills, check the description.
Advanced - D – for riders with experience. A typical route would be over 60 miles with speed varying according to terrain and the group. Some routes may be undulating; others may be more suited to confident hill climbers/descenders. The route details will help you assess if the ride is within your range.
