Are you thinking of riding your bike more regularly?
These are some of the regular rides we are aware of. We set these groups up and supported them through their first months, now they run themselves and are open to all. All groups have their own Facebook pages, click on the links to be redirected to Facebook.
If you would like some support to get riding either lessons or a buddy to ride with, why not book 2 hours with one of our friendly cycle instructors.
Check out these groups facebook pages for up to date information.

Whatever your reasons, we can help you get more out of your ride. We've compiled our top 10 tips for regular riders, helping you to get more out of your bike and keeping you safe, comfortable and happy too!
1. Make sure your saddle is the correct height for you. If it is too low it'll make your rides much harder work than they need to be!
2. Pumping up your tyres doesn't just make your bike safer, they make the pedalling easier and can also make you go faster too!
3. Make sure you invest in a good set of gloves and socks for the winter. Riding a bike in the winter sunshine is lovely, but the cold hands and feet are horrible!
4. Make sure you always ride an arm's length away from the kerb so you can avoid drains and roadside rubbish – you won't enjoy your journey otherwise!
5. To help make those hills go by in a breeze stay seated as long as possible. Pick an easier gear and stand up on the pedals for that last bit of acceleration to get you over the crest.
