Next Meetup

Sunday Social - drive and cycle, Gospel Pass, 15 miles up hill
Fyi. Happy for people to sign up, cancel last minute. We don't penalise no shows. We wait a fixed time then were off. Uncategorised ride, it's there and back,15 miles up, 15 down, 600m climbing - ride at your own pace. I'm sure were all stop at the top for a breather, but doubt we all be there at the same time. Your welcome to turn around at any point. If you want a shorter ride, just go as far as Llanthony Priory for a cafe stop, bring a lock and have a wander. Currently planning to start from the car park in Abergavenny, as far as I can tell it's £4 to park all day, make sure your in the long stay section. Gospel pass is the highest road in Wales, so expect spectacular views, if were lucky and rain if were not. If it's due to tip down, I will cancel. Post a comment to find someone to car share. As with all rides, please bring a spare inner tube for your bike. The rides are self supported - so you need a plan if you have a mechanical issue we as a group can't resolve, eg friend or family member to come pick you up. Your bike needs to be recently ridden and in good order. I'm not taking a bike lock, if we do choose to stop, there's a cafe/bar at Llanthony Prior we could regroup on the way down. Space outside to take turns going in, etc But bring Bring lights and appropriate clothing, snacks and water. Suitable for all bikes Routes - anyone can click on the link, you don't need a garmin https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/21001925

What we're about

This is a group for those that love cycling and who would like to meet up with other for bike rides (Adults/18+ only).

We include regular sociable meetups exploring a selection of routes easily accessible from central Bristol, suitable for most levels of cyclist and keeping to quiet roads/cycle paths.

As an informal meetup group we operates on 3 main principles that anyone coming on a ride/activity/social accepts:

1) No group liability: All members are fully responsible for themselves and deciding whether an activity/ride is suitable for them/whether insurance is required etc. You are choosing to join other individuals, as an individual, and neither the group itself or an 'organiser' is in any way responsible for your welfare.

2) Over 18s only: this is not a group for children, whether accompanied by adults or not.

3) Organising meetups: If you've got an idea for a meetup, fab! The criteria/notes for doing so are at: http://www.meetup.com/bristolcyclists/pages... (http://www.meetup.com/bristolcyclists/pages/organising/) and the discussion boards are open for posting with ideas etc. too...

Our range of members includes beginner to 'hard core' cycling types, so whatever type of cycling you're into, we'd love to see you on a ride soon!
