Our race training rides take place on Thursday evenings and start at 6.30 pm from Aldi Pinhoe (Exhibition Way, Exeter EX4 8JD).
Please contact us if you’d like to join this ride for the first time. You must be familiar with the area to ensure you’ll be able to find your way home if unable to stay with the group.
There are often at least 2 groups of riders. We allow time gaps between groups of at least 3 minutes to enable traffic to overtake easily and safely. At no point should a group catch another group on the road. Time gaps must remain for everyone’s safety.
All riders who join the ride should be familiar with the Wheelers guide to riding in a group. Please adhere to these guidelines or you may be asked to ride independently.
