Gloucester & District

Social Cycling

The aim is to have a chatty time whilst exploring the area around Gloucester Cranky Old Guy by bike.

We don't race, as most of our outings are timed at 9mph.

We aim to have two stops (at least one in a pub) per journey.

You don't have to ride the whole journey loop.

Our outings are usually in the drier months.
