  • Single file on narrow roads
  • Point out objects in the road
  • It is dark and cold in the mornings – use lights and dress warm


Bunch Etiquette

  • Blow your nose at the back of the bunch
  • Don’t attack – training rides are just that – training rides
  • Don’t half bike
  • Be punctual – our rides leave at 6.30am

Visitors are always welcome.
Saturday rides are slower and easier so beginners are welcome.
