Training Rides v Social Rides
Training rides are done at a faster pace than social rides and typically ridden in one or more groups or drafting lines. However no one will be left behind. They don’t usually include a cafe stop.
Social rides are at a slower pace. Everyone can take part as long as they are fit enough to do the distance and route. They are no-drop rides and usually include a cafe stop at roughly half way. While faster riders are welcome to push off the front the ride leader will be at the back with the slowest rider.
The usual obligatory stuff for both kinds or ride: Roadworthy bike, properly fitting helmet, puncture repair kit and bike tool, working lights, mobile phone and sufficient drink and energy munchies for the distance.
