Weekly club rides

RCC has several social road and off-road rides every week. They’re not cliquey – just turn up in good time (the times below are ‘ready to ride’ times) with at least a water bottle, an inner tube that fits your own bike, and if necessary, lights. The rides are graded. But if you’re not sure what your fitness or ability is like relative to everyone else’s, it’s probably best to start on one of the easier rides and see how you find that. If you’ve got any queries, contact the ride leaders or post on the forum. As well as the regular rides, members often arrange informal rides on other days.

Please note: you are welcome to join us for up to THREE social rides before becoming a member. After that, we would expect you to join. This is partly due to the terms of our Public Liability Insurance (which state that we can have up to 10 non-members on a ride, and that a non-member may turn up for three rides), and also because, well, fair’s fair: we are a club and we organise these rides for club members.

Don’t forget to sign up for RCC’s Twitter feed too.
