Cycling

We arrange rides throughout the year. Our programme aims to please both leisure riders and those looking for something faster, more mileage and challenging hills.  


How We Ride

Social, short rides: Easy rides on roads or cycle paths and at a relaxed pace. Food will be an important feature of our sociable rides and we will stop for coffee or lunch - either en route or at the end. Any type of bike is suitable.

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.

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.

What It Costs

All bike rides are free to BLAGSS members. You might want to bring some money for refreshments and any travel costs (e.g. rail travel to and from a ride).

If you are a BLAGSS member, please log in for details and to register your interest in any upcoming rides.

If you're not yet a member, you can come along to your first ride, after which you will need to join BLAGSS.

COVID-19 Restrictions

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic only six participants are allowed for each ride.

Below each ride you can register your interest on a list. If the list is full then you will be put on a waiting list. If one of the six drops out then the first on the waiting list is included on the ride.

If you are one of the six participants but you have decided you don't wish to attend then please do remove yourself from the list.

Helmets

Cyclists must wear proper cycling helmets on all BLAGSS rides. This is a requirement of the insurance company.
