YOUR RIDING STYLE RIDE LEVEL QUESTIONNAIRE
Please give us an idea of your riding level/style. This will give us an approximate picture, so we can match the rides we offer to best suit you, and will not commit or restrict you in any way during your time with us. Do your best to tell us how you ride, as this will help us in giving you the best holiday possible.
AVID / STRONG ****
I ride whenever I can, often riding 4- 6 times per week. My non – riding friends think I am crazy! I’m fit, and I often ride with a group, and am comfortable riding in a pack, or training with strong riders at a steady pace. I seek out long or steep climbs, or mountain passes, and am comfortable with descents. I feel confident riding in traffic.
I try to ride several days per week/month, and may ride with a club. I can manage well over various terrain, including hills. I ride for enjoyment and will sometimes ride long and hard, and other times more relaxed. I like to take a coffee break now and then.
CASUAL RIDER **
I ride once or a few times per week/month. I can manage to ride on hills, but I don’t seek out the longer or steeper climbs in my area as part of my ride – I prefer flatter rides. Steep or technical descents are not my favorite part of a ride. I do my best to avoid roads that have a lot of traffic. I’m happy to stop for ice cream or coffee on the ride.
I’m a new rider, or I ride occasionally, but not necessarily on a weekly basis. I ride for relaxation, and prefer/do better with easier terrain. I like to stop for a coffee as part of the ride and appreciate a nice rest at the break before I continue my ride.
True beginners will find it difficult to meet our minimum requirements for our rides, unless hiring a road e-bike
