Where and when we meet for rides:
We regularlarly meet up at Shiney Row, Follingsby or Tesco Extra in sunderland (see Facebook for details of rides) every week at for various rides to different destinations. Distances of our Sunday rides tend to be 70-80miles but we do adjust these depending on the riders and weather conditions. Saturday rides will usually be about 30 miles.
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.
Our monthly club meeting is at the community room at Tesco Extra at the Wheatsheaf in Sunderland. All members are welcome for the open meeting starting at 8:00 - come along and meet us with a cup of coffee.
