Hub Weekend Rides and Walks

Below are the details for the Weekend Guided Rides and walks for 2018.  All our weekend rides meet at the Hub unless stated otherwise, when they do start at the Hub, loan bikes & helmets will be free to loan.  Please aim to be at the meeting point 5 minutes before the start time so that forms can be filled in and the ride leader can brief you on any specifics of the ride.  All rides are fully risk assessed and marshalled, with the marshals all capable of dealing with any mechanical problems that may arise, and the ride leaders all first aid trained.  Please bring appropriate clothing for the weather, whilst we leave no-one behind, it is unfair on other riders if you have to turn back early due to a bad choice of clothing.

*Please note details are subject to change, so please keep an eye on our website, facebook and twitter especially on the morning of the ride in case of a cancellation.
