Group 1 is our fastest paced ride. Expect an average speed of 17-18 mph. It’s ideal for fit riders who may be looking towards competitive riding, whether that is road racing, time trialling or getting great times in sportives.

The normal distance covered is 60 – 80 miles, although the group tends to favour shorter rides of 50 miles during the winter.

The group sticks together and stops if any riders puncture or have any mechanical issues. No one gets lost or left behind, and the group finishes at Green Street Green. A route map and GPX files are usually posted on the Events page before each ride.

Most of our routes are gathered on ridewithgps here: http://ridewithgps.com/groups/GS-Avanti-Club-Runs
