New Member Rides

These rides are for individuals who are new to cycling in groups and are interested in joining our club. To participate, you should be a confident and experienced cyclist who is used to riding solo distances of at least 70km at an average speed of 24kph. These rides are both training and social, so come ready to learn and have a good time. If you have any questions, please email Brian.

Ride Leaders

Each ride will be led by an experienced club member who will be happy to provide support and tips throughout the ride. They are not usually qualified coaches, but maybe able to provide helpful advice and guidance.


Please note that these rides are not suitable for those who are new to cycling or for children. If you are new to cycling or looking for rides for children, we recommend checking out British Cycling’s Let’s Ride program.


Our club is full of experienced riders, many of whom have been members since the 1960s. We have former professionals, national and world champions, as well as racers who compete in track, road, time-trial, cyclocross, and mountain biking. Don’t hesitate to ask questions, whether it’s about gear, nutrition, riding techniques, racing, or the best places to ride!
