When? Every Sunday (April – August only).

Time/Distance? The rides are usually no more than 25 miles.

Pace? Usually 11-13mph but this will vary depending on the terrain.

Do I have to be a Club Member? No, we welcome all potential new members, so please feel free to come along as it's a good way to find out more about the Ystwyth Cycle Club. If you like it, sign up and join the club!

Do I have to be over 18 to take part in the Beginner Ride? If you are aged 14-17 and would like to join a Beginner Ride, check out the ride description above to ensure the ride is suitable for your level of fitness and ability. You will need to complete our Parental Consent Form beforehand and bring along with you to the ride. During the ride a nominated rider will ensure you are not on your own for the club ride.

Check out the Club Ride page for more information on what to bring and tips on safe group riding.

Each ride will have a nominated ride co-ordinator who will determine an appropriate route and pace, however, you should accept responsibility for your own conduct and safety (including the safety of your bike and other equipment) during Club activities. You take part in Club rides entirely at your own risk. We highly recommend that you take out appropriate third party insurance for your own sake. Membership of British Cycling can offer you this form of cover.
