One & All Cycle Club - Sunday Club Rides

  • Tuesday 20th November 2012
Sunday rides are one of the mainstays of the One & All Cycling Club. These rides are designed to cater for as many different abilities as possible from complete novice through to those training for road races and time trials. They take place every Sunday.

The structure of a Sunday ride starts with cyclists meeting up from 8.45am at the Bissoe Bike Chain Cafe and Cycle Hire near Devoran. Club ride guides are provided to divide cyclists into groups of different abilities so that everybody cycles with people similar to themselves.

The groups depart from Bissoe at 10 minute intervals starting at 0910hrs for the fast group.
Safety on the road is of paramount importance. The rides guides are experienced cyclists who aim to keep everybody safe whilst enjoying a challenging ride. Ride guides warn of, hazards ahead, change of speed, change of direction, potholes, manhole covers, parked and approaching vehicles along with pedestrians, dog walkers and horse riders. Warnings are given verbally and by pointing and given in plenty of time.

At the end of the ride, all the cyclists tend to come back to Bissoe where we drink gallons of coffee and eat loads of cake! Have a look at our Facebook page where there are often lots of comments from cyclists about the good times they had on Sunday rides.
