Member’s Group Ride Schedule

Saturday Group Rides

The routes follow a 12 week rotation – imaginatively called BM1, BM2…BM12.  The standard versions are generally between 80-100 kilometres in length and there are longer versions of each route of about 120 kilometres for those who have the time, the fitness and an understanding family.   You will need to be a competent group rider to take part in any of the Saturday rides.

All Saturday rides are for members only.

Sunday Group Ride Schedule

Members only ride, self-navigating (no allocated ride leader) round that week’s Come and Try It (CaTI) route.

Groups of a maximum of 6 will be sorted and communicated a couple of days before the Sunday (whilst COVID19 pandemic means we cannot meet as a large group at café and self-sort).

These rides are for members who wish to ride at an average pace of 22kmh (12 to 14mph) on these routes which are shorter than the Saturday routes (usually 25 to 30 miles).
