We run weekly club rides every Sunday throughout the year. Currently our rides start from Coffee Fix in Gatley (80 Church Rd, Gatley, Cheadle SK8 4NQ) at 9am in Winter and 8.30am in Summer. Check our Facebook page for the latest news on upcoming rides and download the route maps.
We often start with two groups, one steady paced and one faster. The steady group will have an average speed of 14-15mph (on flat) over 30 miles. The faster group may average 16-17mph (on flat) over 40 miles and may include hills. Both groups will aim to return to Gatley around 11am-12pm to meet up for coffee.
In the Summer months we often have mid-week training rides at a faster pace or to work on group riding skills.
No one who joins a group ride will be left behind. The group will wait and help if anyone suffers a puncture or mechanical problem. We don't have strict rules for our Sunday rides since they are meant to be relaxed social rides. We just ask that you obey the Highway code, ride safely within the group and use a road bike so you can keep with the group's pace. If you are new to group riding then please take a look at British Cycling's guide to group riding before joining us, although we can help you learn how to ride safely.
Non members are very welcome to join us on our Sunday club rides, just contact us on our Facebook page if you have any questions or just turn up and ride! We ask that you join the club officially via the British Cycling website (Click here) after 3 rides with us (it's only £11 a year).
Anyone is welcome to come on the club rides before joining the club and feel free to bring friends along. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult though who is responsible for their safety.
