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.
This year is Carnival Year in Saffron Walden! There are loads of spectacular performances, fantastic entertainment and community events planned! All profits made from Carnival will be distributed to local charities and good causes after the event.
The Carnival runs from 7th to 15th of July 2017. To find out more visit www.8dayweekend.co.uk.
