Autumn cycle rides

It’s getting cooler and the clocks will be going back soon, but there’s still plenty of rides to go on. Cycling UK's Natalie Parsons shares her suggestions.

Summer may be gone, but there’s plenty of cycling left to do this autumn. Here are a few ideas to get you out enjoying the changing seasons.  

The Golden Beeches is a wonderful weekend of cycling in the glorious Chilterns. On the 20-22 October, you could find yourself enjoying a series of quiet routes along forest tracks. There’s a choice of rides each day with plenty of refreshments and autumn colour to keep you going. All cyclists are welcome. Visit southbuckscycling.org.uk/events/

The Dartmoor Devil is a 60-mile road ride through the hills of Dartmoor on 29 October, just before Halloween. It sets off from Bovey Tracey, and features a climb up Widecombe Hill. Mudguards are advised and lights are essential.

Emitremmus, the annual ride from Stevenage to mark the end of British Summertime, also takes place on Sunday 29 October. Emitremmus is the last event in our Challenge Ride Series 2017. You have two options – the Emit Lite and the classic Emitremmus Desrever, at 67km and 101km respectively. Book early at stevenagectc.org.uk/emitremmus.php.

Other autumn rides

If you can’t get to any of these rides but love the idea of sharing your autumn cycling with others, see what your local Member Group is doing. 
If you’d rather cycle alone or with a few friends, our new County and Area Guides provide information about cycling opportunities for every county in the UK, giving National Cycling Network routes, events, and cycling groups in each area.
