Joining a ride

If you would like to join us on a ride then we’d welcome you coming along.

Please use the Contact form to let us know you’re interested in joining us and use the selection boxes to tell us a little about your current riding. We’ll then be able to let you know whether there’s space for you that week and, if there is, the most suitable ride, when and where to turn up and who to ask for. To get an indication of which ride you’re likely to try, you can use our “Which first ride” page too.

Our Sunday rides are usually between 25 and 60 miles, though sometimes special rides are a bit further. Pace varies from a social 13-14 mph to a fast 20+ mph. Thursday rides are for Club Members only and aren’t suitable as a first trial ride.

Typical Sunday ride

If you’re not used to riding in a group, are not sure if you can manage 14+ mph pace or aren’t sure of cycling the distance, we run intro. rides on Saturdays most weeks in the summer, where you can get used to riding in a group and gradually building up pace and distance. If you’re interested in these rides, please join our mailing list to receive details of when these are running.

For those already cycling, new joiners will be matched as best as we can to a ride of suitable speed and distance. Riders can take up to three trial rides to decide if they like it after which, we ask them to join to carry on riding with us.

We’re very lucky to be within a stone’s throw of beautiful countryside in Cheshire and Derbyshire that caters for all manner of rides. Why not come along and see why we’re so passionate about cycling in our local area?

Please also have a look at the Club Rules to which all riders must adhere. You may also like to see the notes about Group Riding.
