Thornbury

Cycling

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.

Our rides are sociable as well as good for your fitness and we stop for coffee, and lunch on the longer rides. We ride at a pace to suit everyone and regularly stop to regroup to ensure no one gets left behind.

Due to increasing popularity, we have decided to limit the number of riders on each ride to 12 but organise more rides ...

- Tuesday afternoon rides are up to 20 miles, usually starting in Thornbury.

- Thursday "A rides" are the ones we have traditionally organised and usually start around 9:30am. We cycle between 30 and 40 miles and stop for coffee and lunch and finish mid-afternoon.

- Thursday "B rides" are on the same day as the A rides. These rides usually start around 9:30am but aim to finish around lunch time. We cycle between 30 and 40 miles, stop for coffee, but arrange to have lunch near Thornbury. That way you can return home without lunch if you wish and just have a morning ride. Currently we have no need for these rides!

Some Thursday "A" 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. It's a great way to explore the cycle friendly lanes around Thornbury and beyond.
