We are a small friendly group who use our bikes to get fresh air and exercise and enjoy the countryside in good company. You don’t need a fancy bike to take part; any roadworthy bike will do to start with. Many newcomers to cycling worry about whether they are fit enough to keep up, but we want you to enjoy our rides and the leader will adjust the pace to suit the participants so that you won't be left behind. Another benefit of riding with a group is that if you have a puncture or some other mechanical problem there are experienced riders to help you. We aim to offer rides for all abilities.
We offer a choice of led rides on Sundays, occasional cycling holidays and monthly social evenings from 19:30 at The Kings Head, Market Square, Aylesbury on the second Tuesday of the month. We have also enjoyed Christmas socials, a summer BBQ and a couple of quizzes; anything that members want that someone is willing to organise!
https://www.cyclinguk.org/local-groups/south-bucks-midweek is also part of Cycling UK and some of us also take part in their rides on Wednesdays and Coffee Pot meets on Fridays.
Recently we have had some bike workshop sessions to show members how to check and adjust brakes, gears and bearings. Other sessions are planned to explain route planning and navigation aids like GPS units.
We have a Facebook group which is a good way of keeping in contact with other members, asking questions and sharing cycling related information. You have to have a Facebook profile yourself to be able to see the page and to protect everyone's privacy it is a closed group. Having said that, all local cyclists, members and prospective members are welcome.
We have a Strava Club group where you can see where others are riding, find possible riding companions and get ideas for your own rides. If you are competitive you can see who is fastest up local hills and other route segments.
