Cycling in a group, with friends or family is a fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors, get active, explore our beautiful city or get out into the countryside.
Cycling with a group also helps you build confidence as you are supported by the group ride leader/s and other participants, especially when you are unfamiliar with routes, or less experienced on a bike.
You can come along to our group rides on your own or with others, to meet new people and chat or simply to just enjoy getting away from it all.
We have a number of weekly group cycling activities that are available for anyone to join and we will also have regular longer rides for those who want to get out for the day, to challenge themselves further. We have something to suit all ages and abilities. These activities are led and supported by experienced, trained cycle leaders with full mechanical and first aid support.
Our groups are supportive and encouraging - for our evening rides, we will stop for a brief refreshment. For our daytime cycling, a cup of tea is always available at the cycle hub cafe!
Ladies Cycling Group - Every Monday evening from 6.30pm - suitable for ladies of all ages and abilities. Take a look at our Ladies Cycling Group page for more information.
Adult Cycling Skills - Every Monday and Wednesday morning from 10-11am, whether you are a complete beginner or returning to cycling after a long time, just learning or developing confidence, our cycling sessions are a fantastic way to build up your skills.
Beginner’s Group Cycling - Every Monday from 11.30am to 1pm, our easy and gentle group ride is suitable for those just getting started, those with less confidence, older or dealing with health issues.
Intermediate Group Cycling - Every Wednesday from 11.30am to 1.30pm, our intermediate group ride helps build knowledge of safe routes, builds on cycling skills, and helps you get outdoors in a supported and safe environment.
Adults Cycling Group - Every Thursday evening meeting at 6.20pm to leave at 6.30pm returning around 9.30pm, our adults cycling group is suitable for confident, competent cyclists. Rides will be 15+ miles and may be on cycle paths and/or road. It is not a speedy road group however you must already have a certain level of experience to come out with us.
Youth Group - We started a new youth group over summer 2021 and then carried on up to the October holidays. This group will restart in April, for kids age 10 + years.
For all of our rides, we have bikes and helmets available to use. We also have baby seats if you want to get out with your little one. If you need your own bike checked, please come 15 minutes prior to the start of the ride to give us a chance to check it over.
In addition to our weekly activity, we can organise specific rides for your community organisation, school or group. We can plan a suitable route, depending on the ages, abilities and health of your participants, and ensure that you have enough trained cycle ride leaders to accompany your group safely. If you would like to enquire about a group ride, please contact us with your specific requirements.
If you have any queries about any of the activity, don’t hesitate to send us a message.
