NEW MEMBER FIRST 2 RIDES ARE FREE
If you want to come and try before you buy the first 2 rides are free to all new members. Come along to any of our advertised rides and see how you get along.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW RIDERS:
Although we more than welcome new members we are not a beginners club for people new to cycling. We have a minimum standard new members should be able to manage before joining. This is around 14 mph over a flat 30 mile course for our cafe rides. Hills will be included on club rides and all other rides so it is expected you will have some experience on these before joining a club ride. This is to ensure all members of the club enjoy their ride and are able to ride at the stated ride averages and distances .
***Although this website is frequently updated, for the most relevant and up to date information please join as a paid member and ask to be added to the Fylde Coasters members facebook page. Look for the links on this page to join****

Drive Rides & Touring Rides
From 2018 we are trialling a new way of doing these rides. To try and accommodate all abilities we will be keeping to small groups of 3 or 4 people of similar ability who will ride together. Groups to be arranged where possible in the days before these rides. more info on the members facebook page
Due to the large variations in difficulty of the drive rides and dependant upon numbers attending giving average speeds is difficult however please allow a full day for these events
