Easy / Beginners rides

These road rides are aimed at the cyclist who wants to start or return to club riding in an uncompetitive environment. It's planned to cover around 20 -35 miles, see below for estimated distance. The emphasis will be to keep the group together at all times, so we will move at the speed of the slowest rider.

On Sunday easy rides there will be a café stop half way round. Estimated duration is about 3 - 5 hours depending on distance and riding speed. View previous routes on our Sunday Easy Ride RideWithGPS page.

Some Sunday rides are intermediate rides, which are more challenging than the easier rides and will cover a greater distance at a faster pace. These may have more than one cafe stop. A shorter alternative ride is often available.
