About us 

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.

Rides restarted in mid-July 2020 with a maximum of 6 riders in each group. Different cafe stops are being used for each route to limit numbers at any one location.

At present weekly route details will NOT be on this web page so we know how many riders are coming in advance.

Three different routes are available to accommodate a variety of abilities.

E-bike riders are welcome.

All rides importantly include a cafe stop! 

Information about the group rides 

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.

NB: Due to Covid19 regulations (Sept 2020) the groups are temporarily limited to 6 riders and will use different café stops

  • 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 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 each week, usually on the Saturday preceding the ride. People intending to ride are asked to confirm with the group organiser (leyburncycling@gmail.com) by 9am on the Tuesday so we have an idea of numbers.

Covid19: We need contact details of who will be riding each week so the route map will no longer be available directly from this web page. Please contact leyburncycling@gmail.com for route details and to register for a ride. 

Look forward to you joining us!! We still have fun even at a social distance!!
