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.

GPS files are all available via the links above so please download them beforehand so that you are in a position to ride at the front of the group and provide navigation if need be.

Sunday Group Ride Schedule

On the first and third Sundays of each month there are led rides (Come and Try It plus Steady Social) where non-members can try riding with us before deciding to join the club. We encourage members to ride separately from these groups if numbers are high (we keep group sizes to 8 maximum for safety), in order to keep spaces available for non-members.

Members can self-navigate (no pre-allocated ride leader) round that week’s Come and Try It (CaTI) or Steady Social (SS) route – just turn up at the café to see who else is there wanting a members only ride, or pre-arrange through our members-only facebook group. The CaTI and SS routes are shorter than the Saturday routes (usually 25 to 35 miles / 40 to 60 km). These shorter routes are also helpful for members wanting to ride at more social paces (12 to 14mph / 20 to 22kph or 14 to 16mph / 22 to 25kph).

Members can also self-organise rides on any Sunday using their own routes and deciding where and when to meet, of course!
