The Club currently has about 300 members of whom approximately 160 members meet every Wednesday for nine categories of group rides.


Ride groupings are based on average speed and distance. Within any one grouping there may be several ride groups on any particular day (or even none), depending on numbers of riders and available leaders. It is aimed to limit the group size to 10.

There are 5 speed groupings in each of two start times for Wednesday rides, with the earlier groups generally travelling further.

Important note:

The speed shown is the AVERAGE speed overall. To achieve this average speed requires the majority of the ride to be ridden at much higher speeds. Much of the ride will be at speeds 25-30% or more above the average speed. Note that the ride leader has the discretion to alter the route, and distances will also vary. If on any day you do not feel you are capable of maintaining this higher speed or distance you should ride with a slower group, both for the sake of your health, and to not spoil the ride for others who have to wait for you.

Ride groups on a Monday and Saturday will be arranged according to numbers and leaders present. Riders can anticipate leaders will ride at similar speeds to Wednesdays.
