We have three ride groups to suit varying abilities: a club ride, a mid-paced and a fast group. No riders are dropped or left behind on any ride. Our club rides average between 13 to 15mph, depending upon terrain and cover 45 to 50 miles. The mid-paced and fast rides both cover about 50 miles with average speeds of about 15mph and 18mph respectively. The destinations listed are for the mid-paced and fast groups. All rides unless otherwise stated, leave from The Butts, Alton at 09.00.

We have a Whats App group that keeps riders up to date on our rides. Contact Jim Woods using the "Contacts" link to be added to the group.

The club ride is a mixture of experienced riders and those who are new to cycling. The aim of the club ride is to promote both the etiquette and the advantages of group riding. During the summer months rides may occasionally be longer than 45 to 50 miles. These are identified by a * and the ride leader can be contacted for route details. Club rides may not always go to the mid / fast group café but there will always be a coffee stop!

There are 20 mile summer evening rides at a slower pace. These start from the Anstey Park Rugby car park (club nights) or the Butts (other Mondays) at 6:30pm and return by 8:00pm. There are also faster Monday evening rides leaving Owen's shop in Four Marks at 6:30pm and finishing by 8:00pm
