Group rides

Group lessons and group rides run at both South and West hubs on a Thursday morning:

10am – 11.00am: “Learn to Ride” group lesson. This is suited to people that cannot ride at all or who are returning to cycling after a break. This is also for people who can ride, but are lacking confidence and wish to build their skills.

11:30am – 12:30pm: guided group cycle ride. This is suited to people that can ride and wish to have a gentle, social ride guided by professional cycle instructors, or who wish to gain some experience on quiet roads.

No booking is necessary, please just come along.
