Please keep an eye on the Facebook group for further details or Contact Us directly.

Following the COVID-19 interruptions the club is just starting to run group rides again. We are aiming for roughly one a month at the moment so please see the Facebook Page for details of any rides going ahead.



Group Rides

What: Rides aimed towards getting three groups of differing speeds for 2 hours in the Peak District: Group 1 (10-12mph average), Group 2 (12-14mph average) and Group 3 (14mph+ average).
Where: Starting at 08:30am at Millhouses Park Café.
When: The third and fourth Sunday of each month, throughout the year. Please check the Calendar on the website for the latest listings in case of any rearrangements. The third Sunday rides will also coordinate with the Easy Paced Bike Rides when these are scheduled from Millhouses Café.

The aim would be to get 2 or 3 groups out according to pace for a sociable ride, with the chance to get some miles in, develop group riding skills and meet up at a café afterwards. For riders that average less than 10mph in the Peak District, or wish to ride significantly above 15mph unfortunately these rides will not be suitable. We aim to keep the groups together to get out for a nice sociable ride.

It would be really helpful to have some identified group leaders to help coordinate and keep the groups together, so for any of you are interested please can you let me know dates you could commit to via –

Finally, there will be a couple of points to note.

– Mudguards and flaps required for wet rides (it will be winter – see the Kit Officer to purchase club flaps)

– Please bring sufficient equipment for minor bike repairs (for example a multitool, a couple of inner tubes and a bike pump)

– Don’t forget money for the Café afterwards.

Summer : Forge Valley Cycle Track

Looking forward to getting these sessions up and running and getting club mates together, so now it is over to you to get the dates in your diaries and come out to play!
