PLEASE READ - IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR 'NEWBIES"

So, you've visited our website, maybe contacted a club member or seen us out on our bikes... and you'd like to come along to see if it's really for you, well that's great! To enjoy the experience of group riding you do need to be moderately fit & in possession of a suitable road bike. Riders need to bring with them the following items when joining any of our rides:-

A mechanically sound bike (full length mudguards + rear flap* on wet rides).
A certified cycle helmet & wearing suitable cycling clothing.
At least one spare inner tube (two preferably), tyre levers & a working pump.
A drinks bottle with energy/hydration solution (maybe two for longer rides).
An energy bar or food high in carbohydrates.

If cold or wet weather is likely, a waterproof top, gloves, overshoes and a skull cap (for those of us who are thinning on top!)

* We can provide rear flaps, all you need to do is cut to size & fit.
