The Red Run is the mainstay of our leisure cycling. In good conditions, we ride about 50 miles at a decent pace averaging between 16 and 18 mph depending on the terrain, weather and group. Nobody gets left behind and it's not a training ride but it's faster than a Blue Run and you will find some good riders here. The Red Run extends to Thursday evening rides in Summer months when the late sunset is conducive to evening riding. This tends to be a faster ride but, once again, we won't leave you behind.
Sunday Club run, all year round, meet at 8:50 for a 9.00 am start outside The Red Lion, Shoreham, BN43 5TE.
