Club Rides

Sodbury organise a weekly club ride every Sunday at 9:00 am prompt.
Every ride starts from Chipping Sodbury Common Entrance, St Johns Way.

 

We categorise our rides to help display its level of difficulty for the average cyclist.
Green = Undemanding
Yellow = Demanding 
Red = Challenging

Club rides range between 45-65 miles, with the occasional longer routes in the summer months. There will always be a coffee stop planned half-way through the ride for that essential coffee & cake re-fuel.

Routes can be found in the calendar below or visit our Facebook page for all our Club rides & events.

 

We operate different ability groups:

 

Grupetto: 14-15mph

The grupeto, maybe its rest day, maybe you are new to cycling, maybe you just want to chill out and enjoy the social side of cycling. Sometimes a shorter route of 30 miles and no one gets left behind. Riding for the joy of cycling itself.

 

Peloton: 16-17mph

The peloton. A more relaxed pace, but still clicking down kilometres to the café stop. For those who want to still chat while riding but also want a good tempo.

 

Breakaway: 18+mph

The breakaway. For those looking to stretch their legs, the faster riders who want to be at the front and pushing on. Take your turn in the wind if you have the legs for it and dig in to not get dropped. But if you do inevitably get dropped fear not, the peloton will be with you soon.

 

Completely New to it all?

We also offer monthly group lead rides of a shorter nature for those who wish to gain more confidence in riding & learn about what riding in a club is all about. If you are unsure about anything please do not hesitate to contact us.
