General Info

Before joining any club ride make sure you have read and understood “Advice for All Rides” (On the right hand panel) – particularly “CBC Ride Etiquette”.

We have led rides all year round for a variety of abilities and fitness.


Owners of electric bikes are welcome to join the club and join rides,  provided  they have spoken to the ride leader beforehand and their suitability for the ride has been accepted by the leader.    At no time should the E-bike rider dictate the speed of the ride.

CBC offer a variety of rides for a variety of abilities. We always welcome new members and if you are new to cycling we are happy to advise on the best rides to come on and how to get started. Contact our rides co-ordinator (link to email) for advice.

Just starting out?

Saturday Mornings are very sociable and friendly. Have a look at the page for start times and also our Club Ambassadors who will be happy to meet you at the start and show you the way.

All our rides either split into a variety of abilities or go at the pace of the slowest rider so no one will be left behind. Coffee stops are an essential part of all trips and Tuesdays and Thursdays will generally take most of the day.

Thursdays have two rides one being at a slightly faster pace for those who are more experienced.

We have other social rides and seasonal options as well as the popular mountain Biking group also on a Saturday.

A Ride Leaders Toolkit from Cycling UK is available HERE.
