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 you want some guidance it's best that you contact Russ Powell at secretary@waldenvelo.com.

 


Summer rides

In the Summer we have four 2 hour rides that leave the Market Square at 7.30am and another two 2 hour rides at 9.45am.
At 7.30am we provide four different groups for 2 hours each that typically run at 16, 17, 18 and 19+mph (allowing for different conditions).
At 9.45 we send out two groups for 2 hours each, one at 15mph, 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

Normally, on the last Sunday of the month during the Winter we 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 9:15 a ride leaves from the Market Square for about 2 hours. These usually follow a Sunday group 3/6 format, although there is more emphasis on it being relaxed. These are advertised on our Facebook page.

 


Come and try us!

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