We have 5 set routes for our winter Wednesday rides
The Whoosh, Shwoosh (as a trial), Wiggle, Reverse Wiggle and Hammers. Each route has been risk assessed.
We all need a bike with mudguards from October onwards through to the end of March.
They are mandatory on all VSCC rides between November & February regardless of weather conditions.
On those (rare) days in October and March when we have good weather then mudguards will not be required but they will be expected in wet conditions. (If you have to ask, is it dry enough?.....it isn't!).
See Mudguards for more information.
