How far do you ride?

We offer two ride options – 35 km and 50 km. The 35km ride is paced at 18km/h and the 50km ride is paced at 25km/h. Each ride takes 2 hours.

Which type of bike do I need?

We ride exclusively on roads, so a road bike or a hybrid would be best suited to the routes we cover.

What time do you start?

Our ride schedule is as follows:

0715: Meet at departure location (currently Darts Farm, by the bike sheds)

0730: Depart with your chosen group (35km or 50km)

0930: Return to departure location for a hot drink and a snack – then back to the day job!

Where do you go riding?

We are safety conscious and so endeavour to cycle on quieter roads and back lanes to avoid traffic. To keep things interesting we change our rides from month to month. You can see some of the routes that we use on our Strava Club page.

Do I need to be an experienced rider?

No, but in order to complete the ride in good time you should be comfortable with the average pace and distance of your chosen ride.

Will I get dropped from the group?

No! We aim to be inclusive, so if you drop off the back of the group a member of the Michelmores team will sweep you are and ensure you get back safely.

How do I get involved?

You can stay up to date with our ride schedule by subscribing to our Cycle Network newsletter. Once you are subscribed we will email you each month to let you know about upcoming rides.
