It's Reli Ride Season!

One of the oldest traditions in cycling – and one of the best ways to test fitness – is the Reliability Ride. And in our part of the world, we have an embarrassment of riches – with eight of these rides scheduled over the next few weeks.

Not only are these rides cheap as chips, great fun and a real challenge in the early part of the season, but they're a great opportunity to mix with many of the other clubs in the area. They are all around 50 miles in length and Alba members will be organising groups of similar-paced riders.

What’s more – ARCC will be offering a prize for members who complete all eight rides in the series. Keep an eye on the ARCC Members FB group for details.

Here is the entire series – more details will be available about starting times/places and other crucial stuff nearer the date.
