New to cycling
Here at Sodbury we do what we can to offer support to those who have just started cycling or are looking to get into cycling. Although we do not have the capacity to cater for new riders starting out every week, we do offer monthly social rides.
For more up to date information take a look at our Facebook page on details of our monthly social rides.
Our monthly social rides are lead by 1 to 2 group ride leaders who have a lot of experience in all aspects of cycling to help you on your way to becoming a more confident, knowledgeable & safer cyclists. These group rides occur on the first of every month, starting from the Chipping Sodbury clocktower at 9:00am. The routes are anywhere between 20-30 miles with perhaps the odd hill or two to get that heart pumping. Depending on the ride leader & the number of riders out there may be a coffee stop, although if anyone needs a break or a chance to re-fuel at any point in the ride then that is fine.
In the meantime between monthly rides why not have a go at the routes below to help yourself improve, give yourself a challenge to try and complete the route that little bit quicker, challenge yourself or a KOM/QOM on a segment along the way.
