Our ‘Pub Rides’ are designed to give you a great day out and have been planned around a lunch stop at a great, cyclist friendly pub!

Our ‘Club Rides’ are our favourite local routes, all of these rides guarantee a great view and they vary in length and difficulty, just like our local roads!

Our events each have their own character, some are 100% road and some involve riding over cobbled streets, gravel tracks and mountain bike trails! Every one of them is a great day out, you can either ride with us on the event day or download the route and go it alone.
