Where and when we meet for rides:
We meet-up adjacent to Bolton Town Hall, every Sunday at (8:30 am sping/summer) or (9:00 am autumn/winter) for various rides to different destinations. The distances of our 'A' rides tends to be lower in winter, gradually increasing through spring, peaking in summer & reducing again in autumn, but we do adjust these depending on the weather conditions; Our 'B' rides cater for riders who don't wish to ride as far or as fast and can be useful for new-members who feel unsure how they will cope.
The club has a wealth of experience and always makes sure that our new riders are looked after on their first few rides. We pride ourselves in riding in a disciplined and safe manner and respect our fellow road users. For example we acknowledge cars that wait and pass us safely, we single file when safe and appropriate to do so. We also slow down for horses and often chat to them as we pass, so that we don’t startle them.
