Rides in Sept and Oct
On most Sundays our all-day ride is replaced by a slightly shorter 2-stop ride which stops for morning coffee and lunch and then returns directly back to Cambridge without a tea stop. For more information see Rides in Sept and Oct.

4 Oct: Sunday ride to Meesden and Much Hadham

4 Oct: Sunday afternoon ride to Hare Street

What we do
We organise four or five cycle rides a week throughout the year. Newcomers are welcome on all our rides.
On most Sundays we have two rides: an all-day ride (from 60 to 90 miles) and an afternoon ride (30-50 miles), though on some Sundays in winter we have just a single ride. We also have shorter Saturday short social rides (15-25 miles) twice a month at a slower pace than the Sunday rides. We hold a mix of rides during the week. On Tuesdays our senior cyclists' group rides at a gentle pace to a pub for lunch and back (30-40 miles). On Wednesdays in the summer (and occasionally during the winter) we have short evening rides. And on Thursdays we have a very popular all-day ride that starts out-of-town.
