Rides in March and April
The first signs of spring are arriving and, right on cue, our March and April ride lists are now available.
From March our Sunday morning start time changes to 9.00am, and from April our Sunday afternoon rides restart, starting at 1.30pm.
Our twice-monthly short Saturday social rides restart on 7th March. Our weekly rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays continue, as do our monthly Wednesday evening rides. Read more about our future rides here.

What we do
We organise four or five cycle rides a week throughout the year. Newcomers are welcome on all our rides.
On most Sundays we have two rides: an all-day ride (from 60 to 90 miles) and an afternoon ride (30-50 miles), though on some Sundays in winter we have just a single ride. We also have shorter Saturday morning rides (15-25 miles) twice a month at a slower pace than the Sunday rides. We hold a mix of rides during the week. On Tuesdays our senior cyclists' group rides at a gentle pace to a pub for lunch and back (30-40 miles). On Wednesdays in the summer (and occasionally during the winter) we have short evening rides. And on Thursdays we have a very popular all-day ride that starts out-of-town and is usually shorter than the Sunday rides (at around 40-70 miles).
