Saturday Rides

Saturday rides provide easy rides of a little longer distance than the Wednesday evenings – suitable for members wishing to progress or for those who cannot make mid-week rides.   Covering distances usually between 15 and 20 miles, many will use traffic free paths and canals etc.  Most rides are suitable for mountain bikes, hybrids and road bikes with suitable tyres.  Members with pure road bikes with “skinny” tyres may find some of the rides a little difficult.
