Club Rides

Please read the NEWT Club Policy for our club rides: NEWT-Club-Bike-Policy-2013
By becoming a registered member of NEWT, all members agree to abide by and follow this policy.

Cycle Groups

Based on riding skills and typical cruising speeds demonstrated by any NEWT attending a club ride since Aug-13, the following groupings have been agreed by the coaches. This table will be used to set up groups. There will be updates when time trials are conducted around the 'Goldcliff circle' route.

Please note if you attend a ride for the first time you will default at the bottom of this table until you demonstrate your competence to the coaches to ride in a different group
