Group Rides

A led group ride is the perfect way to build your confidence, explore the cycle routes around South Birmingham and make new friends. Our rides are family friendly, cater for all abilities and ages. We offer several led group rides throughout the year. These are normally during school holidays, with the occasional weekend and special events.

Our previous rides have been very successful and fun for all involved, these included a family led ride to ‘The Big Healthy Lunch’ Cofton Park, an Easter Egg Ride, ‘The Big Hoot’ Cycle South Brum Led Ride and our famous Halloween Ride plus many more.

Our Summer Family friendly led bike ride with pond dipping on Tuesday 31st July was a great success. We would like to thank everyone who came along and shared our bike adventure, we had a great time discovering the outdoors on two wheels and we met some great little creatures along the way too.

 

We also run a Ride Active program – Fun social rides and training for ages 12+ Every Thursday, 5pm from Victoria Common, Northfield. From November-February the learn to ride cycling tuition will be held separately at 3pm please arrive early. The meeting point is Northfield Ecocentre. Please book your place below.

See the bottom of this page for links to other local cycling groups running regular group rides… Happy cycling!!
