IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW RIDERS:
Although we more than welcome new members we have a minimum standard new members should be able to manage before joining. This is around 13-14 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 to a minimum level .
Please note Mountain Bikes are not suitable for our rides. Ebikes welcome providing either road ebike or hybrid ebike
