We run Sunday morning club rides throughout the year with a different format in the summer and winter. If you've not ridden with us before and would like some guidance, please contact Alan McGilveray at secretary@waldenvelo.com.

 


Summer rides

In the summer, we have four rides that leave the Market Square at 7.30am for two hours. And two rides leaving at 9.45am for two hours.

At 7.30am, there are four groups that typically run at 16, 17, 18 and 19+mph respectively, allowing for different conditions.

At 9.45am, there are two groups: one at 15mph and the other at 17mph.

See here for more information on the Summer rides

 


Winter rides

During the winter months, we typically run four groups at lower speeds: 15-16 and 17-18mph for either 2 or 3 hours, starting at 8.30am, again from the Market Square.

See the Winter Rides page for more details.

 


Cafe rides

On the last Sunday of the month during the winter, we normally have a cafe ride. This is a more social affair, riding for a couple of hours and then stopping at a nice cafe or tea room to stuff ourselves with tea and cake before struggling home.

See here for cafes around Saffron Walden that are cycle-friendly.

 


Mid-week rides

On Wednesday and Friday mornings at 9.15am, a ride leaves from the Market Square for about two hours. These usually follow a Sunday group 3/6 format, although there is more emphasis on it being relaxed. These are communicated on our Facebook page.

 


Come and try us!

We welcome all new riders and suggest you contact our secretary for advice before coming along to your first ride, so you can get more of a feel for how the groups ride and choose the right one for you.

If you enjoy the rides and want to come back regularly, then we would ask you to join the club - membership information can be found on the Join Our Club link. We're here to encourage you to get involved and join in our rides. And we're also keen to train and encourage new Ride Leaders, so if you're interested then please let us know.
