Ride 24/7 Cycling Club offer a series of rides from the shop throughout the week.

Sunday

Introduction to our Sunday Club Rides.

The Sunday morning club rides aim to get members out together to enjoy all aspects of cycling, to socialize and catch up with the latest news in our sport.

We wish to attract a wide range of participant and riding abilities within the club membership.

The Sunday ride will now be known as a Leisure ride which will leave from the shop at 09:30am. Groups may change when the number of riders increase.

We will ride at a moderate pace dictated by the group dynamic.

Slower riders will be helped and opportunities taken to allow regrouping after hills etc.

The ride will be between 35-50 miles with a café stop.  Routes will vary each week.

We advise mudguards if the conditions are wet.

Thursday

We are now offering an Off-Road ride which is aimed at MTB and Cyclocross Bikes. We leave Ride 24/7 at 6:30pm so make sure you are well equiped with lights (advised 400 lumens +)

Routes change each week and each last approx 1 Hour 30. We try finish at a jet wash to clean the bike so bring £1 if you wish.

Tuesday

Our famous Tuesday evening Club rides have now ended for 2014 and will start up again in Spring 2015.
