Upcoming Events

    Sunday Club Ride

    Start: 8:30AM · End: 12:30PM · Location: Winchester Hotel

    Tuesday Evening Training Rides

    The rides start at 7pm from the old Hargroves Bike Shop on City Road. Currently there are two or three choices of ride, depending on numbers:

    1. Fast – target 20-21 mph
    2. Medium – target 18-19 mph
    3. Slow – target 16-17 mph


    Please ride single file on the way out of Winchester, until we are off the main thoroughfares out of the city. Admittedly, this can create a long line of cyclists which is just as hard to overtake as cyclists riding two abreast but at least it gives motorists one less thing to complain about and if we leaves gaps every 6-10 bikes then cars can 'leap-frog' when the coast is clear.

    The routes are usually planned so that the groups converge at least once on the way round to allow a bit of mixing and matching. That’s the theory anyway.

    Please check Facebook or email as rides and timings may be subject to change. It is recommended that, in the summer, lights are brought along to use in the event of a puncture or mechanical issue causing a late return. In the winter they are, of course, essential. After the Tuesday evening rides, riders head to the Winchester Club for a drink and a chat.

    Start: 7:00PM · End: 9:00PM · Location: Hargroves Bike Shop (as was)
