Unlike most cycling clubs, we pride ourselves on putting our social community first and the cycling second. At our core, we all love cycling, it has brought us together, it keeps us fit and healthy, and we love exploring the beautiful countryside.
We are open to all abilities, ranging our rides from newbie rides all the way up to long distance sportives. Our calendar is jam packed with cycling and social activities, with the intention of having “something for everyone” and nobody gets left behind.
You will notice on our rides that we use a colour code system to differentiate the difficulty. To understand this better and to work out which level you are at please read our ability guide here:
We will never allow more than 10 people in a group, so we if have more than one leader we will split into two or three groups. We will then split the pace the best we can, the faster riders in group 1 and so fourth. So 1 leader equals 10 cyclists, this is why you will see wait-list for a while until another leader confirms.
Our rides are getting very popular, please only RSVP if you are serious about coming. There is nothing worse than having no-shows and then people on the wait list missing out. If you no-show 3 times without 24 hours cancellation notice you will be removed from the group.
We have a Clapham Cycle Whatsapp group which is really useful if for some reason you do lose the group, as more than one person on the ride can see your messages. Join here: https://claphamcycle.com/chat
We value all feedback from our members, and in particular in relation to your experience on the ride. Please email email@example.com – We promise to review and ensure your identity remains anonymous if you so wish.
