All our ride groups meet on the Old Ettington Road in Wellesbourne, next to the playing fields and adjacent to the Co-op. Please assemble on the side of the road away from the pavement.
All ride details are published in the Events section of this Website.
Club Ride - Sunday
Meet time is 09.00 on Sunday morning. The Club ride is normally of between 45 and 55 miles at an average speed of between 14 to 16 mph. The ride often splits into two speed groups before the start of the ride. The Club ride has a coffee stop and this is usually taken at about the halfway point of the ride.
Sunday Club riders aim to be back in Wellesbourne about lunchtime. Ride Leaders usually decide on a route for the day which they share with the Club WhatsApp group the day before the ride and members are able to download the route if they wish.

The Mountford group meet at 10am on Thursday. They tend to complete a maximum of 20 to 25 miles. The pace is relaxed – maybe between 10 and 13 mph and, whilst there are a few hills included in the routes, they are generally not as challenging as those of the other groups and nobody gets left behind.

Dene usually meet at 10.15 on Thursday. Distance is a maximum of 35 miles typically at speeds of between 12 and 15 mph.
As with all our groups if the group gets split up for any reason (on hill climbs, for instance), then we wait and regroup accordingly, so that nobody ever gets left behind. The rides include a stop for coffee (and cake).

Women's Group - Tuesday Evening (Seasonal)
On Tuesday evenings during the longer days we run a Women's ride. The pace is steady without too many hills and we usually finish at the pub for refreshments with the Tuesday Evening ride members.
Some winter rides may also be organised on an ad hoc basis so keep an eye on the Events schedule.
