We are an informal group, affiliated to Cycling UK, who arrange a regular rides programme for like-minded cyclists. Although centred in Petersfield we have riders who regularly join us from surrounding towns and villages including Liphook, Fernhurst and Clanfield.
We normally run two rides on the last Sunday of each month. The faster paced ride averages 15mph over 45 to 50 miles whilst the mid-paced ride, which does around 25 to 30 miles, is a ‘no drop ride’ and goes at the pace of the slowest rider. Rides usually start from outside Waitrose in Petersfield but occasionally we start elsewhere in the region for variety, including an annual trip to the Isle of Wight. Both rides will normally stop at a cafe mid-way through the ride. In addition a number of ad hoc rides are organised by individual riders during the year. Many of the faster group meet most weekends to ride together and several of the ladies also use Whatsapp to arrange to meet up regularly at weekends when the weather is good.
