The Sunday social rides meet outside the Swan Hotel along the Embankment in Bedford at 9 am.

Garmin-compatible routes are posted on the FB page a few days beforehand. Note that ride details may change at the last minute due to weather conditions, please keep up to date via FB, see the Facebook link at the bottom of the page.

The main groups, depending on numbers, are:

Short and Steady: aimed at those new to cycling, recovering from injury, or those who just want a shorter ride. Around 25 miles at 12 to 13 mph average speed.

Medium: aimed at those who have been cycling for a while, also good training for sportive type events. Around 60 miles at 15/16 mph average speed.

Fast: for those who really want to test themselves. Around 60 miles at 17 to 18 mph average speed. Same route as medium.

Please note that average speeds are given for guidance only to enable you to pick an appropriate group to join.

The Short & Steady and Medium groups will generally have a designated ride leader and a no-drop policy.

The Fast group is considered a training exercise and you may get dropped so please make provision for this.

Essentials: for all rides please dress appropriately, take food and drink, a spare inner tube with tools, and money for a café stop. Mud guards are highly recommended during the winter months.
