This weekend, 22nd/23rd July, the club rides are undergoing something of a relaunch. 

Over recent weeks 30 club members, who are amongst our most experienced club riders and who have volunteered to be ride leaders, have met and discussed how our club rides are run. We've put together all of the feedback we've been given from across the whole range of our club rides and hope this will make the club rides even more enjoyable and successful than they are now.

Easter 2015 16
I am planning a C ride 'special' to the Eden Valley starting from the Moot Hall in the centre of Brampton, Cumbria at 9:30 am on Sunday 25 September 2016. Brampton is situated about an hour's drive from Newcastle just off the A69. Free parking is available at the car park in Union Lane and surrounding streets.
This is not a ride suitable for beginners as the planned route is just over 50 miles and has around 3,000 feet of elevation gain.  The lanes around Brampton and the Eden Valley are quiet, scenic and somewhat hilly but the aim of this ride is to take in a different area at a moderate speed, so good group riding will be the order of the day.  Lunch will be at the Station Café at Langwathby and I am aiming to be back at Brampton by 3pm.
If you fancy coming along - or aren't sure or have any questions - please contact me via the forum, PM or Facebook.  Hope to see you at Brampton on Sunday 25th. Proposed route:

In February this year we were all shocked by Bob Melrose's sudden passing after a short illness.

Many members will have known Bob as the person who organised the Saturday and Thursday (TOGs) club rides and was often the first person prospective new members met when joining a club ride for the first time.

He was without doubt a most popular member within the club, a past Club Person of the Year and Captain and is sadly missed. It is therefore fitting to mark his passing the club will be organising a Memorial Ride to the Hearth at Horsley on Saturday 15th July. Club members will be able to share over a buffet our happy memories of Bob and favourite stories (long ones cut short of course), and Bob's wife Ann will be joining us on the day too

To allow as many club members as possible to attend if they wish, there will be two starting points for the ride:

  • The main ride will depart at 10am from Samm's Café in Ponteland, riding in organised led groups.
  • The youth club ride will depart following Go-Ride coaching (approx. 10 - 10.15am) from Thorneyford Farm.

We can only accommodate 80 people so places will be on a first come first served basis.

To book your place, please login to the website and then click here.

The cost is £5 per person, and your place will only be reserved once payment had been received. The deadline for bookings (and payment) is Saturday 8th July, although spaces may well have sold out before then!
