Sunday Club Run
9 am Summer Months, 10 am Winter Months
The Sunday Club run is always varied as we take advantage of the abundance of brilliant routes available in the area. Normally we start at our club hut, located behind 60 Wellgate Street, Larkhall. The Sunday club run will typically be in the region of 40-50 miles with most members adding further miles by cycling to and from the club hut. There is always a coffee stop which will normally be in the last 10 miles of the run.
Group leaders will be selected to lead three groups - race, lead and development groups, these groups will these groups will operate at a pace appropriate to ability. The role of the leader is to ensure the group operates as an effective unit and in a safe manner. Instructions issued by the group leader are expected to be adhered to.
The Royal Albert Cycling Club aims to be inclusive and welcomes cyclist of all abilities, age and gender. It is a current aim of the club to increase the number of ladies and youth participating in club activities.
