Weekend Rides

Depart at 08:30 (March – November) for a ride lasting approximately 4 hours covering a distance of around 50 miles, with a mid-ride cafe stop.

We normally have at least three groups – one steady (approx 14-15mph), one medium (approx 17-18mph), one fast (approx 19-20mph)

Mid-week Evening Rides

Our mid-week rides continue throughout the year, so lights will be a requirement if you do intend to ride at night with us.

Winter Mudguard Policy

During winter months we do insist that all riders have full length mudguards fitted to their bikes.  This makes group riding much more enjoyable, by keeping fellow riders clean.  It also helps keep your own bike cleaner.
