Membership for cyclists of all abilities

Are you looking for a sociable ride to get fit, or wanting to participate in more challenging events, or just keen to keep in contact with other cyclists?  We cater for all of these and more and cyclists aged 18+ can join the club.

You can come out and try our rides a few times, before joining.  You are welcome to join us for all or part of the ride or meet us at lunch.

Most sections meet at a café or pub and then ride together to a location for lunch, some sections continue to an afternoon tea stop, others ride home after lunch.  Some sections just meet at lunch.  The larger sections may have 25 on the ride and 40 at lunch.

Our sections vary in their speed and the distance they ride, so ask around if the section you try does not suit you.
