About our Club Rides

 

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

 

Why should you come on a club ride?

 

It is the best way to progress your cycling. You will 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 experienced marshals and vehicle support rather than cycling on your own.
