All participants will receive a Certificate of Merit to mark their achievement and there will be refreshments for all. 

For those new to cycling and unsure what a Reliability Trial is, it is a traditional early season challenge, a hard training ride. They are not sportives (or races), so no route markers (printed maps will be provided), no feed stops and no results. You set off in a bunch and make your way round as best you can (you need to make sure you are able to cope with mechanicals etc). 

If you are planning to ride a sportive, a cycling challenge, charity ride or race in 2016 or just want to get fitter and improve your cycling then Reliability Trials are a great way to kick start the new year training.

Why not come along and join the Dundee Wheelers every Saturday and Sunday to help you get the miles in and get ready for our Reliability Trial in good company. Details of the weekly club runs are on the web site and there are some Frequently Asked Questions with information you may find useful. The club runs are suited to all abilities with the faster group leaving from the Camperdown Gates at 9am on a Saturday and 9:30am on a Sunday. A steadier and newcomers group leaves from from the Millennium Hall, Muirhead at 9:15am on a Saturday. The duration of the runs, with a coffee stop, is approximately 3-4 hours depending on conditions. The club runs provide the opportunity, and practice, in riding in the company of others, and also advice on cycle maintenance, what to wear, what to carry, etc. All newcomers welcome and there is no obligation to join the club.
