Leyburn Cycling provide on-road social rides in and around Wensleydale.
We run weekly rides all year round setting off at 09:30am on Thursday mornings.
Three different routes are available to accommodate a variety of abilities.
E-bike riders are welcome.
All rides importantly include a cafe stop!
Each week we run three routes, referred to as Long, Intermediate and Short. The aim is for the three groups to meet up at the same café stop so we can chat together. With the different distances covered though that’s not always possible. Normally there will be between 5 and 10 riders per group.
- LONG routes are generally between 30 and 45 miles in length and ridden around 15+mph average
- INTERMEDIATE routes are generally 25 to 35 miles long and ridden around 12mph average
- SHORT routes are generally 15 to 25 miles long and ridden around 10mph average
Rides usually commence from the Market Place in Leyburn but to add a bit of variety, roughly every 5 or 6 weeks, we have an “away” start from places like Reeth, West Tanfield or Wharfedale so we can explore further.
There is no advance programme of rides instead the route map (pdf) and meeting arrangement information is uploaded to our web page. People intending to ride are asked to confirm with the group organiser (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 9am on the Wednesday so we have an idea of numbers.
