About Club Rides

Welcome to Walden Velo

Our club is about about cycling together and enjoying the company we keep.

We roll out every Wednesday, Friday & Sunday morning and whether a novice or an expert there's always someone to share time on the bike with. After all, it's what we like doing!

Founded in 2012 by five cyclists, we just want to enjoy the sport with other riders.
