What we're about

Welcome to the Broughton Cycling Group. The group was founded Summer 2013 by a group of neighbours who wanted the opportunity to get to know each other, build community spirit and get fit at the same time.

We started off by just getting on the bikes and having a go. We covered small distance rides to begin with and regularly stopped at the pub to check our times with a celebratory drink!

Today the group is growing with a great bunch of riders who have varying levels of fitness and ability. We always welcome new members from our local community who enjoy cycling and meeting new people. We like to keep things simple. We don’t take it too seriously and there is a ride to suit everyone.

Visit our Facebook Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/broughtoncycling/) or find out more at www.bcgmk.com (http://www.broughtoncyclinggroup.org)

It is really helpful to our ride leaders and admin team if you add your first and surname to your Meet Up account please.
