In choosing to ride with the SWCC, it is expected that you will adhere to the SWCC Ride Etiquette Feb2015

With the increase in group 3 numbers, recently we have been combining group 3 & 4a, then splitting into two roughly even groups.
Group 4b includes experienced group riders as well and is the starting point for new riders. The term ‘social pace’ may be interpreted differently by new riders. This ride by no means ambles along, and to give a guide to new riders, the ride average is about 28km/hr.
NOTE: The club recommends the use of rear lights for all club rides throughout the year.
