We schedule group rides on- and off-road. They are chatty, social rides and usually include a cafe stop. The slower the pace – the more the chat. We ride at the speed of the slowest so you won’t get left behind and we’ll make sure you get home safely. See our EVENTS CALENDAR for dates, ride types and times. Why not come along to try out a couple of club rides before deciding if you would like to join? Contact us here for more details or you can sign up to rides using our Club App Spond, here.
How long should a Sunday weekend ride be?We offer rides of different durations depending on ability. On Sundays our green rides, of about 20–30 miles take about 2-3 hours. Our longer red and black rides can take upwards of 5 hours. You can see typical ride grading and lengths on the Club Rides page.
Do you run social events?Yes we do! Whilst our rides are very sociable, social events are great for meeting the wider membership community and getting to know each other. We recently held a social at West Berkshire Brewery which was good fun and very well-attended, we hope to repeat this again soon. At the end of November 2020, we held a virtual quiz, again very well-supported, with teams competing against each other on Zoom. Our annual dinner is usually held at the end of February and a club Bar-b-que is held in late summer.
Spond, our new ride app tells our riders everything they need to know. With invites, alerts and a calendar of organised rides, you can see start times, route information, who’s going and simply sign up with one-click. You can even buddy up with fellow members to create rides of your own.
