Club Rides

Everyone is welcome to join our club rides as an invited guest if they have a genuine interest in joining the club.  There will be an expectation that you join the club after attending one or two club rides. We also strongly advise all our members to become a member of an organisation like British Cycling which provides the benefit of individual third party (public) liability insurance. 

 

Before riding with us, please read the Best Practice Guidelines 

 

Please note, in the interests of safety, all club rides will be cancelled if the forecast weather is at 3̊C or below. Rides will also be cancelled if there are reports of icy conditions or snow.  Keep an eye on our Facebook group (members only) for updates

Winter Warmer

About Ride: 

This ride will take over from the bash and run when the nights are drawing in from early\mid September to end of March. It will be a 6.30pm start from the Warwick Racecourse car park and a gentle ride up to Norton Lindsey where the 9.5-mile loop will start from the Cricket Club.  A good set of lights and preferably a backup set are a must and the focus will be on group riding over the undulating course. This ride is suited to Blue/Green Lanterne riders and where we have a large group we will split down into smaller groups.

20 Mile Bash

About Ride: 

The bash ride will generally start when the clocks go forward for British Summer Time and finish in early September. This ride is fast, fairly serious 20 miler... but great fun and all about teamwork. There will be No Drop group (s) plus a range of other Speed groups (drop) so if your dropped you have to find your own way back, but we will always wait for you at the finish. This is a good session for “pace line” training and suited for people of moderate fitness or above. If you are new to this kind of training we recommend you ride a few Sunday club rides first. The start time will be 6.45pm out on the Beausale crossroads (see Garmin link below). This ride is suited to Blue/Green Lanterne riders. The route finishes at the Racing Club car park.
