In accordance with British Cycling guidance, club members are meeting again at 08:00 every Sunday morning in the Diana Fountain Car Park in Bushy Park for our regular rides.
We try and run three rides each week of varying lengths and pace, and sometimes a "gravel" ride too.
Social Pace - Suitable for all riders. The pace will be gentle and you will have a lovely day in the saddle. Any ability of rider will be happy on this ride and the chat will be flowing.
Medium Pace - For those trying to build their fitness or for stronger riders who fancy an easy turn of the wheels. No rider should expect to be hanging off the back gasping for air but be ready to have times when you need to push yourself.
Hard Pace - Our strongest riders will cruise round these rides and our developing riders will push themselves hard. If you are struggling with your fitness expect to have a real workout in the saddle, but don’t worry no one will get dropped and we will all make it home together.
Women's Ride - Every OTHER Sunday
Our women only rides are for ladies with a road bike who have a reasonable level of fitness, but no previous club cycling experience is required.
In addition to our Sunday rides, members often arrange informal mid-week rides and these are usually posted on our Facebook page or advertised through our What's App group.
Your bike must be in good condition with gears and brakes in full working orders, tyres pumped up and checked. Please note that each rider should carry inner tube(s), tyre levers, pump and a mobile phone as well a drink and food (energy bars, gels). Helmets are compulsory for our club rides.
Here are some of our favourite routes... and, of course, coffee stops...
