Organised Clubs runs and social rides
We have regular club rides.
If your cycling passion is to enjoy the company of others and explore the scenery of Northamptonshire and beyond, then our social rides are for you.
We currently have a regular Sunday club ride (approx. 50 miles) and mid week zone 2 ride with Andy King (approx. 75 miles). The first Sunday of the month, sees our monthly steady ride (approx. 30 miles) for riders who want a steadier pace and for those who may be new to group riding. These rides start at the same time as our regular Sunday club ride, with a common cafe destination and anticipated arrival time, so that the two groups can meet up and share experiences.
Our Club rides are throughout the whole year, weather (ice) permitting, so if you’re the hardened all-weather rider or a fair weather rider we have a ride for you. We aim for one group, unless we have enough riders to split into two or more, but what you can be assured of, it’s a social ride, it’s at a pace for chat and it’s not a race, it’s a great way to make new friends, natter along and generally have a great time. It’s a no drop policy, so you will not be left behind.
We have a couple of our club members, including myself that sets the route for the ride, and we publish a route so you can check it out and see if it’s for you, maybe join us on-route. We often get a gathering at the cafe stop, yes CAKE is a common part of a Sunday ride. A gpx file can be downloaded so you can add the route to your app or garmin.
We always aim to be back for lunchtime.
It has been known that a small group of riders, may from time to time do some extra miles either before the ride, or after, or both extending their ride to 80 or 100miles but still enjoying the club ride. If you want to do this, check and arrange it directly with Ian.
There’s a ride for everyone.
We’d love to see you. Check out our calendar of events and we look forward to seeing you on our rides… just look out for our orange and black jerseys.
