Am I good enough to join?
Joining a cycling club isn’t a competition. If you want to test yourself, join us and start with a few beginners rides. Otherwise, don’t worry about what level you are at, enthusiasm is the most important thing. Many members don’t race, they want to do the Sunday club runs, meet other like-minded people and just talk cycling. Read the other FAQs below to get a better idea.
What sort of distance and pace can I expect on your Sunday club rides?
The distance varies according to the weather and what people feel like doing but 50-55 miles is normal whilst the pace is usually a steady 16-18mph. It’s a sporting ride but we’re not out for an unofficial race every Sunday: the pace is steady.
What makes you different from other clubs?
That’s probably more for you to find out, try talking to other clubs. But we like to think we’re a club that offers plenty to a broad range of people interested in cycling. We’re a friendly lot with a good Sunday ride. You’ll find we meet socially too, we’re not an internet-based club. There’s plenty of knowledge across all areas of cycling, from repairing your bike, buying kit to cycling abroad. Join us and enjoy a good ride on a Sunday ride with a cakestop, also there will be mid week rides on a Thursday evening once the evenings draw out enough.
