Club members meet at 08:00 every Sunday morning in the Diana Fountain Car Park in Bushy Park for our regular rides.
We try and run road rides each week of varying lengths, and sometimes a "gravel" ride too. So everyone knows what to expect, we split our rides into four categories, based on an expected average speed, as summarised below:
W1 - Flat: 20-24kph, Hilly: 18-22 kph.
W2 - Flat: 24-26kph, Hilly: 22-24 kph.
W3 - Flat: 26-28kph, Hilly: 24-26 kph.
W4 - Flat: 29-35kph, Hilly: 27-33 kph.
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.
You are responsible for your own safety, and that of your bicycle. You must ensure that your bicycle is safe and roadworthy, with gears and brakes in full working orders, tyres pumped up and checked, and that your helmet is properly fitting and not damaged. 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...
