Saturday summer group rides

Sunday group rides

On the first and third Sundays of each month there are non-drop led rides (Sunday Social and Sunday Steady). Many of our members attend these rides, and we also welcome non-members to come along and try a few of these Sunday rides before deciding whether to join the club. 

Sunday Social and Sunday Steady rides meet from 9am for coffee at St Ann’s Well Gardens café in Hove on the first and third Sundays of the month, and rides set off from the café after the briefing at 9.30am. We keep Sunday group sizes to 8 maximum for safety, so experienced members may sometimes be asked to ride in a separate self-lead group if numbers are too high. 

The Sunday Social and Sunday Steady routes are shorter than the Saturday routes, on average between 25 and 35 miles / 40 and 60km. The Sunday Social rides at 12 to 14mph / 19 to 22kph, and the Sunday Steady rides at 14 to 16mph / 22 to 25kph. The Sunday ride leaders offer guidance on group riding skills and what the club has to offer, and almost always ensure there is a coffee stop en route. 

Routes and dates:

Sunday Steady – 14 to 16mph / 22 to 25kph
