Here are our rides in order of the fitness you’ll need. We don't always publish a route, but when we do, it may only be a day or so beforehand, to take account of the weather. Icy roads mean cancelled rides, so please watch the ‘Next rides’ panel.

Not sure which ride might suit you best? Just email Chris at Can’t find what you’re looking for? We just love it when members suggest, plan and organise something different, such as our new Social Training Ride and monthly Gravel Ride.

Before you come out with us on the road, please read these guidelines first. Before you join us off-road, please read these. If you are aged 12 - 18, your parent or guardian must read this before you come out with us.


Ideal if you are just starting out or starting back, or new to riding in a group.
