About us

We are a friendly cycling club, offering you a chance to explore the quiet lanes around the Pendle area, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland with like minded people. New riders are always made very welcome on all of our rides, whether you are taking up cycling for the first time or returning to it. We adjust the pace of our rides to suit the slowest rider and no one is left behind.

Information about the group rides

EVERY SUNDAY we have a choice of at least two rides, one short ride and either a medium or long ride.

All rides normally feature tea/meal stops at cafes. The short ride is typically up to 45 miles. The average speed is about 9 mph. The medium rides are around 50 miles at an average 11mph. The long rides are 60 miles plus at an average speed of around 12 mph. In winter all rides aim to return before it goes dark (however lights should still be carried).

We typically tailor the first short ride of the month to be suitable for people new to club cycling or returning to it, adjusting the distance to suit the riders.  Any kind of bike is OK as long as it's roadworthy - bring a waterproof and a spare innertube.

Details of all our rides and other activities can be downloaded from our website.
