Level 3: This Wednesday’s routes are a combination of previous routes starting out from Grafton Sports Arena car park. We’ve changed the direction of travel along some sections to give you all a different view of the countryside and the opportunity to enjoying going down some of those hills you battled up earlier in the season (of course you’ll also have to climb some of those hills you enjoyed speeding down!). The L3 group ride will go at a Level 3 pace with a Allan leading in front, and a sweep at the back of the group.
Level 4: If you want to go a little faster and farther, give the self-navigated Level 4 option a try. It’s essentially the same route for the first 9km until Vernonville where you can decide if you want to continue along the 5km extension, or hold back and wait to re-join Level 3. The extension eventually turns onto Telephone Rd where both routes are identical until the finish. If you need help installing the Ride with GPS app on your phone just fire off an email to Webmaster@northumberlandhillscyclingclub.com and we’ll get you underway!
