Cycling Adventures is ideally placed to help you to maximise your enjoyment of cycling and explore some really great routes. Our group is looking for members who will join our rides on a regular basis so please only join if you intend to cycle with us once a month at least. We enjoy a mixture of scenic city and rural rides and cycle at a pace that is attuned to getting the most from the scenery, architecture and history of the places we visit rather than setting speed records. Conveniently we generally cycle on Saturdays and limit our group size to 8, as 6-8 people is the optimal group size for social rides. All trips are organised and led by one person and these are normally around 30 miles but we can sometimes push that up to 50 miles for some really special days out. Our pace is between 10-12 mph and most types of bike are welcome, even e-Bikes. Indeed we are the only group that actively welcomes e-Bikes as we believe that they help people into cycling that are not catered for in other clubs. As we cycle on roads, cycle routes and trails we would recommend Hybrids or MTBs for this mix of terrain. Our aim is to be a social group but please only join if you feel you can cycle at least 30 miles at a pace of 10-12 mph. This point is important because if you are too slow or can't complete the distance you will feel very discouraged. We reserve the right to guide you to the nearest station if you cannot keep up with the group's moderate pace. The good news is that cycling is an ideal way to get fit so stick with us and see the real benefits it brings. We charge £25 for annual membership but you can also pay £3 per ride if you intend to cycle with us occasionally.
We aim to cycle safely, taking in roads, national cycle routes, trails and towpaths but we have to point out that cycling can be dangerous and all members cycle at their own risk. We also operate a strict policy of following a designated leader on all rides and being able to keep up with the group at a moderate average pace of 10-12 mph.
Please be aware that we keep group numbers relatively small, no more than 8, for each ride and spaces are at a premium. If you cancel twice without good reason you may be removed from the group.
PLEASE ONLY JOIN US IF YOU INTEND TO CYlCE WITH US REGULARLY. IF YOU HAVEN'T CYCLED WITH US WITHIN 2 MONTHS OF JOINING YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL LAPSE.
