Portishead cyclists on the club run

THE CLUB RUN

There are usually multiple rides during the week.   The meeting point is generally at Kestrel Court on Harbour Road, Portishead. Departure times are at the ride leader’s discretion and can vary depending on the time of year.

The Ride Schedule will let you know whats being planned.


Club runs are also posted on our Club Strava page. Riders are encouraged to "join" on Strava and opt-in to any rides. This enables the ride leader to plan for the numbers of riders attending.

THINKING OF JOINING - TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!
Any non-member who wants to join a club run can take advantage of two taster rides. This is a great way to meet existing members and see what we're all about. You are covered under British Cycling's insurances for these two rides.

 

Ride leaders will state one of four levels when posting a road ride. 
Average Speeds will vary depending on the nature of the route
