Thursday Bike Bus Rides

Welcome to the Thursday Bike Bus ride calendar and booking page.

New riders are always very welcome, just use the booking page to book your ride. All we ask is that if you enjoy your riding with us, you join Cycling UK after three rides. It would also be helpful if you could complete the guest registration form at the bottom of this page and bring a copy with you to the ride.

To help you enjoy your ride and improve your safety please read the following pages: Group Riding: Guidance and Principles and Group Riding: Shouts and Signals

Start times are staggered, with a maximum group size of eight which aids group management and limits the frustration caused to drivers.

The Bike Bus runs at an easy pace and aims that no one is ever left behind, however, when booking please note that the earlier groups are steadier than the last group.

Wherever possible please book your ride before midday on Wednesday. This greatly eases the organiser's task of advising numbers to the cafe. With the same aim, please also book if you are riding independently to coffee, using the appropriate column on the booking page.
