If you are joining us for the first time…
Visitors are very welcome – it costs nothing to join our rides. We have rides of different standards every Sunday and Thursday you do not have to be a member of the CTC to come along and give it a try. Once you have ridden with us we are sure that you will want to join the CTC.
Make yourself known to the group leader at the start point and swap mobile telephone numbers and emergency contacts. Please let them (in confidence if preferred) know if you suffer from any allergens, or other relevant medical condition.
Please make sure your cycle is in a roadworthy condition. There are many independent cycle shops in East Yorkshire if you require their help, and although there be many willing hands to assist with any mechanical problems during our rides, all participants should carry a basic toolkit or multitool, replacement inner tubes, puncture repair kit, and a pump. You are more likely to enjoy the rides during bad weather if your bike is equipped with mudguards and you carry a cycling waterproof jacket.
All our rides are coordinated by experienced cyclists, mostly on quiet rural roads and lanes.
Both Sunday & Thursday rides are usually all-day rides (with an option to return direct from the morning coffee stop) and in winter months aim to get back well before dark. We never leave anybody behind, but it is less stressful if you can estimate the sort of pace that’s comfortable. The group will often split into two, Easy & Moderate pace.
- Easy Rides – leisurely average pace of 11-13 miles/hour
- Moderate Rides – moderate average pace of 13-15 miles/hour
Start points of rides vary, so please check before you set-off.
