About us 

We are a club based in Aylesbury, Bucks that runs a range of led adult cycle rides catering for a wide range of ability and interest. We believe that cycling is for all, whether you just want to try a short leisure ride, or prefer something more challenging.

Newcomers is a shorter ride of 15 to 20 miles at a nice easy pace of 8 to 10 miles an hour. It is the best group to start with.

Easy Pace is a longer ride of about 30 miles and around 10 to 12 miles an hour.  This group is for regular riders who would like to do a bit more.

Step up is a longer and faster ride of up to 45 miles at 12 to 14 miles an hour and for stronger riders who want to push themselves.

Moderate is our fast group for more energetic riders and can be around 50 miles at 14+ miles an hour.

Group riding is a great way of exploring the lovely Bucks countryside, keeping fit and meeting like-minded people. Rides are social and there’s a coffee stop half way! It’s also a safe way to ride with experienced leaders, nobody gets left behind and somebody will be able to help fix a puncture or help with any problems.

For Newcomers any serviceable bike will do. Bring a spare tube, a drink, suitable clothing including a waterproof and money for tea! For Easy Pace and other groups, a bike with a good range of gears is recommended. A helmet is a good idea but not compulsory.

If you like riding us, after a few rides we ask that you join Cycling UK our ‘parent body’ which gives you insurance cover, a regular magazine with great articles and information and champions cycling in the UK.

Social

We also 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! We also offer advice on route planning and navigation aids like GPS.

As a club we encourage members to help in it’s running with ideas and feedback, leading rides, or planning occasional social events and cycle breaks. You can get as involved as little or as much as you want!
