About The Ride
Appleyard Lees Velo is a business networking event for road cyclists of all abilities. We'll ride in different ability groups based on average speed. The groups will be accompanied by experienced ride leaders who will navigate, and control pace, allowing riders to focus on networking.
The routes are perfectly designed to encourage networking in the saddle. We'll roll out into quiet, meandering lanes where riders can relax and chat.
We'll be accompanied by support cars and a roving mechanic. Should there be any issues, we can easily help riders get back on the road to complete the ride.
