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 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 café. With the same aim, please also book if you are riding independently to coffee, using the appropriate option in the booking column.

Please be aware that due to weather conditions and other circumstances the planned rides may change or even be cancelled at short notice. The ride co-ordinator maintains a WhatsApp group of participating members and you should receive a message informing you of any late changes. If you are not receiving these messages then please contact us to be added to the WhatsApp group.
