The Cycling Group organises a variety of rides from 15 to 45 miles in length. If you haven't been out on your bike for a while we have our shorter afternoon rides on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. If you have been cycling fairly regularly, we organise longer rides on the second and fourth Thursdays.
Tuesday afternoon rides are up to 20 miles, usually starting in Thornbury. Thursday rides usually start around 9:30am. We cycle between 30 and 40 miles and stop for coffee and lunch and finish mid-afternoon. Some Thursday rides start from Thornbury and for others we transport our bikes to starting points further afield, e.g. Bitton Station for the Bristol-Bath Railway Path or to Tetbury.
Our rides are sociable as well as good for your fitness. We ride at a pace to suit everyone and regularly stop to regroup to ensure no one gets left behind. It's a great way to explore the cycle friendly lanes around Thornbury and beyond.
Covid-19 Update on 3rd January 2022
We are meeting pretty much as normal, but taking into account current government guidance and sensible Covid precautions. Thursday rides may finish by lunch time.
