Beginner Rides (Ride Category 1)

For the “Novice” or “Beginner” cyclist, who feel that they would like to get involved with cycling with a group with maybe a view to improving and progressing onto other rides.


Ultimately decided by those in attendance but usually aims to travel at a speed of 14 mph to give an average speed of around 12-13mph no-one will get “dropped”.


Usually shorter rides of around 20-25miles but occasionally may go a little further if EVERYONE in the group is happy to do so.

Usual Days

Saturday mornings – but may also be organised on other days.

Pre-requisites for Ride

No minimum speed requirement. The ability to ride a bike safely, willingness to take and follow advice from the “ride leader” or other experienced riders in the group on how to ride safely in a group situation.
