The club holds a series of “reliability rides” as a substitutes or alternatives for our Sunday Club Runs. These have traditionally been held early in the year (January to March) to help members build their fitness for the season.
The Reliabilities operate like Audax rides (see Competition/Audax) with the following differences:
- Route sheets are in miles
- There is a choice of speeds for the route 12.5mph, 15mph, (or 18mph on the shorter rides) with a + 10% tolerance to qualify as having succeeded
- Successful members earn a certificate and a club point.

The normal sequence of early season rides is:
- 26 and 49 Mile
- 65 Mile
- 100 Mile
- 150 MILE

The 150 mile ride has not taken place for several years and there are no current plans to re-instate it
