Basic Club Information

A lot of the information you want – including ride details is elsewhere on our website
We meet throughout the year except for one weekend at Christmas.

We are predominantly a Club for people coming into cycling or returning to it and wanting a sociable ride over a reasonable distance at a leisurely pace. Most of the members are 30 plus going up to 70.   All riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult and wear a cycling helmet

We have three levels of rides;  As many of our rides include off-road sections, you should ensure your bike is suitable for the ride, including negotiating any cycle stiles.

Monday/Wednesday nights at 7pm from late April to the end of August – various meeting points in Stockport – It is proposed to have two levels in 2016 – A true beginners ride at about 6 miles and a longer ride of 10-12 miles although some members ride out to the meet point to make a longer ride. Mostly these rides are off road on easy trails and canals.

Saturdays – every other Saturday meeting at 0930 or 1000 depending on the ride. One ride will usually start in Stockport while for the next we will meet in Stockport and drive up to 45 minutes before the ride. These rides are mainly off-road on easy trails over a distance of 14-20 miles. We have now introduced a monthly Saturday afternoon ride for those with committments on Saturday mornings.  This will be suitable for families and cover about 10/12 miles.  Children must be accompanied and parents are responsible for their safety.

Sundays – one Sunday a month mainly on road on quiet lanes up to 30 miles with a lunch stop. Can meet anywhere in the area in order to explore new areas.

Sundays – We also have some longer on road rides of around 50 miles for the more experienced riders who are intending to ride one of the Charity rides or just want a longer ride.

We have a joining fee of £2 then a ride fee of £1 per ride .  Regular riders can take advantage of the annual fee of £20 with unlimited rides.  No charge is made for the first ride.

Our numbers have steadily grown and all rides usually average 15/20 riders , even on Sundays. All rides are led by qualified leaders. We would request that you carry a pump and a spare inner tube of the right size and valve type for your bike.

If you have any more questions after looking at the website please let me know. A Club Newsletter is produced every week.
