Sunday Club Runs:

Every Sunday morning throughout the year the Club is active in the form of a social ride through the local countryside departing from outside The George Public House, Widley. Riders arrive from 9am departing at 9.15am after a route and safety briefing.

Can I come along?

We welcome all cycling enthusiasts.  However to comply with our CTC insurance these rides are open to those aged 13 and over only.  In addition, riders under 18 must provide a parental consent form to the Membership Secretary before riding. Non-members are welcome to join us although such attendance is restricted to 3 rides before membership is required under the terms of our insurance.  Riders should be capable of cycling 40 miles (64 km) of undulating terrain at an average speed of 14 mph (22 kph).  More challenging rides are also available subject to numbers (read more here).
