Longer road rides: Slightly faster paced than the social rides. These rides typically take up to 4 hours and will include a cafe or pub stop. Any type of bike is suitable.

Mountain bike rides: Off-road rides up on the South Downs, suitable for mountain bikes and hybrids. 

Details of rides are posted in advance.

For insurance purposes, all riders must wear a helmet.

Where we ride

We cycle in and around the Brighton & Hove area and  anywhere locally, in fact, wherever  our volunteer leaders offer to lead a ride.
