Cycling UK Member Group - club rides led by an experienced ride leader

These cycle rides are moderate-going rides.  They will follow quiet country lanes and traffic free routes where possible but there may be some main roads to link between quieter roads.  We will never leave anyone behind.

Cycle Ride Detail

  • Total Ride Time: 3-6 hours including stops (varies for each ride)
  • Ride Distance: 20 to 60 miles to local garden centres or cafes and, on Thursdays, pubs for lunch.
  • Suitable for: confident cyclists – advice will be given to those not used to cycling in a group.
  • Conditions: Mostly quiet country lanes with some B or A roads for short distances. Occasional cycle tracks where ride leader wants to avoid a busy road.
  • Bike Type: Roadworthy and suitable for road cycling.
  • What you need

        • You will need a roadworthy bike of course. You should have a spare inner tube, tyre levers, puncture repair kit and a pump as a minimum.
        • Wearing a helmet is advisable for adults and mandatory for all children. Under Cycling UK rules we cannot mandate helmets as such, but a leader may recuse themself from leading the ride if a rider shows up without a helmet - more information on this is available under the heading "Helmets" on the Join page.
        • No special cycling clothing is required. Just dress for the weather conditions. Bright/contrasting colours are advised. For distances over 20 miles, padded cycling shorts are advised.
        • Money to buy a drink and snack at the cafe stop or bring your own. Electrolyte and/or energy mix drinks are advised for the longer rides, but this is a personal choice.
        • If you are not yet a member of Cycling UK, please bring a completed guest rider form to save time at the start.
        • If you need advice on anything cycling just ask a ride leader or anyone in a Fleet Cycling jersey on the ride. We are a knowledgeable bunch!

        • Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
        • For unaccompanied children 13-16 undertaking their first ride of this type with us, a parent or guardian must beforehand contact the organiser to discuss whether their child can achieve the level required. The child must then bring to the ride a guest rider consent form signed by the parent or guardian.

        • All participants ride at their own risk and the serviceability of a bike remains the rider's or parental responsibility.
