Rides in Sept and Oct

Our September and October rides lists are now available. These introduce some significant changes to our all-day rides on Sundays which we hope will make them fit in better with the needs of members.

On most Sundays our all-day ride is replaced by a slightly shorter 2-stop ride which stops for morning coffee and lunch and then returns directly back to Cambridge without a tea stop. On the remaining Sundays, about once a month, we have an all-day ride on the traditional pattern with stops for morning coffee, lunch and tea. In both cases the start time of these rides will be 9.30am. Our Sunday afternoon rides continue as normal. For a more detailed description of how these rides work please see our new Ride types page, and please let us know what you think of these new arrangements.

Our other rides continue as normal. Our ever-popular Thursday rides continue to go from strength to strength every week. Our short and leisurely Saturday morning social rides continue twice a month. Our evening rides continue each Wednesday in September before switching to monthly in October. And our regular Senior Cyclists group continues to meet for lunch each Tuesday. With such a range of rides available, we hope there's one that suits you. If not, tell us!
