May 26th EOM North of the Border Ride

May 26

MAY 26th, 2019 EOM ride. North of the Border
Hello again all. After the success of the last few EOM rides with good attendance, weather and locations our GCI Rory will be leading the May EOM. He has chosen to go North for a change. (we had some complaints!!)

All are welcome. Please read the details carefully and factor in your additional distance to get to and from the start point.

Please see the route below :-Start Point:

Dartford McDonald’s, 474 Princes Road. Dartford. DA1 1YT

Departure Time : 9am sharp
Breakstop:

Bosworth’s Tea Room (CM7 4JX)

Lunch Stop:

Krazy Horse Customs, Bury Saint Edmunds. IP32 6NU

 

Return by the same route to finish at McDonald’s Dartford.

Fuel points:  @ Start point and @ Finish point.

 

Journey Miles:

Start to Breakstop – 50 miles

Breakstop to Lunch point – 33 miles

Return same as above.

Total miles: 166 miles. Estimated Finish time: 4.00pm

Notes:
Weather: As with all Group Ride Outs, please note that if the overnight temperature is forecast to be below 3 degrees C, the ride out will be cancelled automatically. There will not normally be a second notification if this is the case.
BackMarker System: Please make sure you are fully conversant with the rules of the “BACKMARKER SYSTEM“. Following these correctly is vital to the smooth running of the day & reduces the risk of losing someone, or everyone. Details of the BM system are on our RoSPASMART website.   If you’re unsure on the day, ask one of the attending Instructors. They will be more than happy to clarify any issues you have.
Hi-Viz:  If you wear hi-viz, please ensure it is not Orange as this is reserved for the ‘backmarker’ during our ride-outs.  We appreciate you may normally wear an orange hi viz whilst riding.  However, feedback identified that some found it confusing when in the middle of the group to see two or more riders with the orange hi viz.  So, in an effort to avoid confusion and markers leaving their post prematurely only the back-marker to wear orange. Thank you

Please be fully fuelled and ready to go prior to the start of the day.
Have a safe enjoyable day
Ride Smart – Ride Safe !
