About our club

Club standard

The club rides at a moderate to fast pace and averages around 18 mph on flat and 15 mph on hillier rides. All riders must have a well maintained road bike and the ability to ride it safely in a group.

The club has 127 members with including an increasing number who regularly race on the road, track and cross.

Whilst we are not a beginners club and we do not offer coaching, we are welcoming of new members and are quite a varied bunch. If you are interested in joining and have any questions, please email.


Saturday - we run two club rides, the normal club run and the BAT ride. All new riders are asked to participate on the club's Saturday morning BAT ride which leaves from Ken Fosters Cycle Logic at 8:45am. (30-40 miles, moderate pace, see info below) before attending any other rides.

Sunday morning club rides are between 50-75 miles. We generally ride in the Peak District or around the Cheshire lanes with only comfort breaks and a coffee stop at the end of the ride.

Wednesday night rides are around 40 miles and slightly faster.

How to join

We ask all potential new riders to come to a Saturday morning BAT ride before joining the club and the main club rides on Sunday and Wednesday. The BAT sets off from Ken Fosters Cycle Logic 8:45am. Please email us @ this address ( to let us know you are coming. It is occasionally cancelled if the weather is very bad. These rides are normally around 2-3 hours and average around 14/5 mph over moderate terrain. If this goes well, you should then discuss joining the club and taking part in the main club rides with the ride leader (normally Alastair, Andy, Sam, Richard, Nick). If you do decide to join, this can be done through this site (buy membership button). We ask that once you have been out twice with us, that you then join the club, even if you only want to come occasionally.

Other stuff

The club strives to be both friendly and informal, although has had to become a little more structured as it has grown rapidly over the last couple of years. We take road safety seriously and split the ride into smaller groups when it gets too large. If you are riding with the club, you must ride safely at all times, respecting other road users and following the highway code.

Overseas trips to the Alps or elsewhere are generally organised once or twice a year, as well as occasional day trips elsewhere in the UK. Many of us are regulars at local sportives, such as the Fred Whitton. There is a fair bit of social activity with a regular pint or two after Wednesday night rides.
