The Northumberland Hills Cycling Club offers century rides periodically beginning in May, all weather-dependent, of course.
The first century is typically an easier, flat course ride and early in the season. There’s usually an option for stopping at a restaurant along the route for lunch if riders wish, although some just choose to breeze through.
The final century ride of the season typically occurs in Fall and we offer a variety of distances that members can choose from: 25, 50 or 100km. If there is enough interest there may possibly be a 160km option (imperial century distance).
With adequate training starting early in the season, most club members could set a 100km distance goal to progress toward. Consistency will be key—get out and ride regularly, build your distance up incrementally, seek advice from others and you might find yourself celebrating your first Century Ride by the end of the season!
