About our rides

 

Club100 offers friendly group rides every weekend for road and mountain biking.  No matter what pace you ride, you will find a ride to suit you.

Your first club ride

Be conservative.  Choose a ride easier and shorter than you think you can handle.  You will not enjoy struggling to keep up with a ride that is too fast for you, nor will the group enjoy waiting for you.  It is a good idea to speak to the Ride Captain/Ride Marshal before the ride.

Why should you come on a club ride

It is the best was to progress your cycling.  You'll learn how to ride safely and efficiently in a group and it is far easier to head out for a training ride knowing you'll be with a group of friends and have vehicle support rather than cycling on your own.
