Sunday rides

Our Sunday morning rides have been the linchpin of the Club from the outset.

We have 8 groups, each with its own speed and distance criteria - from social to sporting. They leave from the Carfax (map) between 09.00 and 09.20 depending on the group, normally arriving back in town by 12.30-1pm. There is also an offroad/gravel group, which schedules rides every few weeks.

Some groups will occasionally schedule longer rides, which may start earlier and/or return early afternoon.

Normal Sunday rides do not run when Club Reliability Trials are scheduled (see Events) or when ice/extreme weather is forecast.

We have 4 speed groups on Saturday (Social, Intermediate, Sporting & Sporting+), all leaving from Horsham Park bandstand (map) at 08.30 (BST) or 09.00 (GMT). Rides arrive back mid-morning.
