The cycling group enjoys social rides at a relatively easy pace, with a break for refreshments and chat. The group normally rides twice a week on different weekdays throughout the year. The routes generally follow quiet roads, cycle paths and occasional trails. To give a variety of ride routes, we take the train or drive to some starting points. The group always waits for stragglers so that no-one is left behind. We usually have two or more longer multi-day trips each year - these have included the Mosel, Rhine and Hunsruck in Germany, across Wales from Shrewsbury to Aberystwyth and the Viking Trail in Kent. Further information and the group rules are on our website.

Recent Activity

Since the restrictions on group size were lifted in May 2021, normal group rides resumed. We managed one group tour in 2021, due to the restrictions, that started and finished in Oxford and taking in overnight stops in Stratford upon Avon and Gloucester.

Planned Activity
We have European tours planned for 2022 and back up UK based tours if foreign travel is restricted – details are on our website -

Meetings are as advertised
