In which case, Group Rides (Nantwich) is for you!

We are a diverse group of cyclists from all walks of life, most of us living in the Crewe and Nantwich area, who meet up regularly for both weekday evening rides and longer weekend adventures.  There are generally three to four rides each week, generally starting from Nantwich, Crewe or Shavington at 6.30pm, which range in distance but are typically about 25 miles long.  We have some great routes around here and these can go towards Delamere Forest, Whitchurch, into North Shropshire or over to Staffordshire.  The pace of each ride varies but we always adapt this to suit everyone; nobody gets left behind. Typically rides can be anything from 15-16mph and above.  Our rides are well structured to ensure everyone stays safe.  Beginners rides are also a possibility if there is enough interest.

We cycle all year round weather permitting.  Weekend rides might be anything upwards from 40 miles and café stops can sometimes be included.  Our members also enjoy sportives, charity rides, time trials, racing and longer Audax type events. We also have a few social events throughout the year and head indoors when the weathers really bad as we sometimes go spinning.

We have an active Facebook page through which all our rides are arranged and we also post the routes on Strava too so people can download them.  On the Facebook page, you can also find conversations about cycling related issues and technical discussions too.

Anyone in the Group can post and lead rides if they wish and we actively encourage people to do so.  Don't see a ride that you like?  Why not post one yourself, there will always be someone to cycle with.  Never led a ride before?  Don't worry, someone will be on hand to help.

As we have the Cycling UK affiliation, group ride leaders are covered by the third party liability insurance.  This affiliation also allows you to join Cycling UK for your own insurance if you aren’t a member already.  When we renew this affiliate insurance, this typically only costs members about £2-3 each.

If you like the sound of all that…great!  Why not give us a try.  New/guest riders are welcome to come along, no commitments, no joining fees (we are a group, not a club)

You can contact us via the website link or send us an email.  We looking forward to hearing from you soon!
