We have a programme of circular rides on Sunday mornings all the year round mostly on quiet rural lanes. The rides are all on-road and start from different places in Aylesbury and the surrounding villages, chosen by the leader to suit the direction that the ride is going. Many of the rides depart at 09:00 or 09:30, but leaders may choose to start earlier particularly if they have planned a longer ride in summer. There is no set starting place and time so you do need to look at our Rides List each time. You can download our Rides List using a link on the Home page.
The Easy Paced rides are typically 25-35 miles and the Moderate rides are over 40 miles, but often much more in summer. We also have Step Up rides which bridge the gap betwen Easy Paced and Moderate. Our rides are for adults or accompanied teenagers but are not suitable for families. Distances always tend to put people off, but the Easy Paced rides are 3 hours of steady cycling with a 30-40 minute café stop to relax and chat. During the summer months we usually have a monthly Newcomers' Ride of about 15-25 miles of gentle cycling with a cafe stop; these are also shown on the Rides List.
The Rides List should give you the information you need to decide if the ride is suitable for you, such as starting place and time, 11's cafe and pace, but feel free to contact us with any questions you have.
We welcome new riders, who do not have to be Cycling UK members at first, but we recommend that newcomers try an Easy Paced ride first unless they are experienced cyclists. If you are not a member of Cycling UK, you will be asked to fill in a guest registration form giving emergency contact information as a requirement of Cycling UK's insurers. Cycling UK members are covered by Third Party insurance and our leaders are also registered with Cycling UK and insured.
After three rides with us you will be expected to join Cycling UK, which you can do on-line here.
