Weekend Rides
Cycling Club
Join us for a ride on country lanes starting in South Hertfordshire.  See the rides listing below and choose from a
-  Saturday Morning 'Saunter' (easy pace up to 10 mph) 
-  Saturday Morning 'Spin' (13+ mph)
-  Sunday morning 'Elevenses' ride (~12 mph)
-  or a longer Sunday 'Day Ride' (~12 mph).
On Sundays we often split into faster (~12 mph avg.) and slower rides (~10 mph avg), to the same destinations.  There's often someone to return with after the morning coffee stop on the Day Ride and this is guaranteed on the Elevenses rides.

See our FAQ page for further details.   Not a CTC member: Why not try a ride before joining? Just bring a completed guest entry form and Contact us if you have any questions.

*Bike Week invitation rides - newcomers especially welcome (as they are on any ride).

We have up to three stops: a morning break at a café, a lunch stop (usually at a pub, but sometimes we have a picnic or use a café) and, in the summer, an afternoon break at a café.  In the summer a full Sunday ride could be over 60 miles. In the winter, rides are about 40 miles as we have lunch nearer the start and try to return before dark (but please bring lights as we may be delayed).  See our previous ride reports for an idea of what to expect.

We also do introductory rides especially for women on several Saturdays in spring, summer and autumn.

See how to get notifications by email a few days before each ride.  Rides may be need to be changed on the day due to unforeseen circumstances.
