What we're about
We are a group of friends who got together in 2006, to ride in the annual LiDBA 25 mile charity ride around Liphook. We meet every Thursday evening ( April-September) to ride around the quiet lanes of Milland before entering the pub, for a social chat. More recently the group has grown and now we have included some weekend rides. Most of the rides are leg stretchers for fun, some short ones maybe 10 miles, some longer maybe 50-60 miles, taking most of the day at a leisurely- reasonable pace and stopping for drinks, food, photos,or whatever takes your fancy at the time. We ride for fun, we are definitely not head down bum up riders. Most rides are kept local, with some trips to the coast and New Forest. A £6 annual membership fee is payable, for 18 year olds and over. No fee payable for under 18 year olds. Membership is open to anyone who can ride a bike, or tandem if you prefer, both on and off road, to a reasonable standard .We ride for fun, but do enjoy pushing on, so a medium to good level of cycle fitness will be required. All ages welcome for 16+. Do come and join our happy group.
SIMPLE JOINING RULES All new members need to be approved by the organisers. To join you will need to include a photograph and a small description. Please ensure the photograph is a clear one of yourself, ie a face shot to show your whole face, we have received some with heads chopped off, a close up of an eye and cartoons.

We are a social group, we ask you be social too upon joining. Many thanks.
