It's that time of the year again. Some of the central Scotland clubs (us, Falkirk BC, Stirling Tri Club and RCCK) put on reliability rides on successive weekends through February/early March. Here is the list - I will update as I get more info.
If you're not familiar with reliability rides, you can think of them as "spirited" group rides (but not races!). Riders set off in groups - our RR sets off the fastest group first, the other ones do the reverse and set the slowest off first. There is usually a collection at the start of the ride, where the organisers collect a couple of quid form each rider and this is then donated to charity. The rides are entirely self-supported, so everyone needs to know the route, and be aware the group is unlikely to stop in the event of a mechanical.
If any SBC riders are doing these events, if would be good for them to post up with their plans, and their experiences of past rides (speeds etc.) to give newer riders a better idea of what to expect if they turn up/
