Harrogate Nova CC Reliability Ride

Harrogate Nova CC Reliability Ride

February 05 2017
Yorkshire, UK

A reliability ride is known as a test of a cyclist’s reliability and that of their bike coming out of the winter period.  The emphasis is on fitness, self-reliance and navigational skills, although they are also used by competitive cyclists for training ahead of the racing season.

The route is not signposted but a basic route map or description may be provided (along with a GPS file these days). There are no feedstations, timing chips or souvenir t-shirts etc, although refreshments are available following the ride.

The ride is not a race.  Like a normal cycling club ride, it takes place on open roads and without marshals etc.  It is imperative that participants ride responsibly and in accordance with the Highway Code.
