This club is full of like minded people that all share an interest in all types of cycling (Road, Cross Country, Downhill, Cyclo Cross, ect). Rides are taken out on Wednesday afternoon and weekends, and will cater for all abilities, with a range of paced rides. The road rides will explore the local countryside heading out to Dartmoor and Cornwall. XC rides will also explore Dartmoor and down the coast to Wembury. Downhill rides will be mainly using Cann woods but regular trips will be made to Tavi and Gawton Gravity Hub.
These will include cycling themed nights out to riding challenges set across Plymouth, but cycling in its self is a very social sport so there will be loads of time to meet the whole team. Social events will be held at least once every 10 days.
We run multiple events through out the year such as a small downhill seiries to Time Trial and a Hill Climb competitions along with fequent socials. During winter, Turbo Trainer sessions will be held. We also will be attending all BUCS events as well as encouraging people to take part in races.
