As a cycling club, the passion for the ride is what brings us together. As a community, we value safety on our rides, and encourage riders to continually improve their skills and knowledge to help them stay safe. Our coaching partner Onebody runs group sessions for all levels and abilities so members can enjoy their rides more, no matter what their goals.
To help members and visitors understand how to ride in a bunch situation, Smart Cyclist has produced a fantastic guide with pictures to explain some of the concepts like holding your line or rolling turns. We also have opportunities for adults and kids to develop and practice these skills with experienced ride leaders with a focus on fun!

You will regularly see riders in our club kit on the M7. Feel free to say “Hi” and ask about the club. Any of our members would be happy to share their experiences with the club with you.
