Cyclebag East are a Cycling UK affiliated group based in Bristol. We are a long established touring group offering regular rides around the Bristol area. Our rides tend to be social and at a leisurely pace. Length of rides is between 30 and 55 miles stopping for morning coffee, lunch and sometimes afternoon tea. We have a committee and regular ride planning meetings are held to plan a ride programme in advance. Rides are usually fortnightly throughout the year and in summer 'pop up' rides occur in between rides on the programme.
Historically we have organised 'moving on' touring holidays and also cycling holidays based in one place with rides and walks in the local area organised throughout the holiday.
We tend to have a ride programme planned in advance and also some 'pop up' rides which are arranged at short notice. The rides are usually on a Saturday. We have a ride leader who plans the meeting point, ride route and refreshment stops and also rides up front to lead those on the ride.
