Reliability Rides (February)
SNCC/Titan 2020 Reliability Ride
Please be aware that all event entry fees and proceeds go 100% to charity. This year split between Sue Ryder Moggerhanger, Maggies & Ronald McDonald House Charities.
This event is always well supported and the social atmosphere welcoming. Riders enjoy a relaxed start, with free refreshments and snacks afterwards, although an extra donation to the charities is more than welcome.
For those unfamiliar with what a Reliability Ride is Wikipedia covers the broader term, but put simply it's when a club puts on an event for it's members and guests to dust off the winter and challenge themselves at the start of a new season. The idea is to be self sufficient and cover a given course on their own, without signposts and support. These events are however quite nostalgic and something to be continued for the heritage of cycling. Spot the difference between a Reliability Ride and a Sportive?
You can be assured of a warm welcome at the start and end of your ride, come along and enjoy.
2020 First Updates...
Despite the unexpected wind and rain this did not deter 81 riders from "enjoying" the RR and thanks to the 31 club members who braved the elements. Thanks also to George, Karen and Mandy at Titan for organising the HQ and to Gary (Holdsworth Foods) and Paul (Exsa) for the food provision. We raised £1,300 on the day - a combination of entry levies, donations, matching by Titan and a special mention for local builder and historical building restorer, JH Restorations, who made a very generous donation. The money raised will be divided equally across our three nominated charities.
