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 and Sunday morning, and whether you're 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.

2019 Season

We are now running our Winter ride schedule again.

Sunday ride Winter structure

Our Sunday morning club rides change for the winter to take into account the darker mornings and change in pace required for safe riding when road conditions can be less than ideal.

We put out four rides starting at 8.30am from the Market Square.

See Winter Rides for more details on the structure, and the Sunday Ride Schedule for an up-to-date view of upcoming Sunday rides.

Wednesday mornings

Mid-week club ride, leaving the Market Square at 9.15am.

Fridays mornings

Mid-week club ride, leaving the Market Square at 9.15am.
