Where and when we meet for rides:

We meet at 8.30 or 9am (depending on the time of year and destination) every Sunday at Thornes Park in Wakefield for various rides to different destinations. Distances of our rides range from 25 to 100+ miles but we do adjust these depending on the riders and weather conditions.

Other rides include Wed & Fri 10am and Thurs 6.30pm at Thornes Park

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 chat to them as we pass, so that we don’t startle them.
