We’re Changing the Format of our Monthly Rides

We’re changing the rules! Each month we will be asking you to register, the rides are still free and open to everyone but online registration is required. To ensure this, we’ll only be sending the route and exact start location to registered riders (but don’t worry, we’ll give you lots of hints!). We’ll also be limiting group numbers to 20 riders per group and spreading you out over slightly more groups. All of these measures will improve safety on the roads and also mean that you get some more focused time with the HotChillee Ride Captains!

The estimated group speeds for the UK rides will remain the same, with an extra group 3 and group 4 on each ride.

G1: 30+ km/h
G2: 29 km/h
G3: 28 km/h x 2
G4: 26 – 27 km/h x 2
G5: 24 – 25 km/h

We have two groups for our South African gravel rides with a shorter, less technical route for beginners. The groups are:

G1: Intermediate

G2: Beginner

If any of the groups are full, you can sign up to the waiting list to be informed if a space becomes available.

You can see the full 2019 monthly ride calendar, including both road and gravel rides in the UK and South Africa here.  We’ll email registration links and post them on Facebook and Twitter when they are live, so keep an eye out to avoid disappointment!

The January rides are now live and you can register and find out more information by following the links below:

HotChillee CC also have a series of informal road and gravel rides that you do not need to register for throughout the year. You can find them all on the HotChillee Strava Club. For more information on how to join HotChillee CC click here.
