Our club rides
We currently organise several weekly road and trail rides which
start at the Horton Country Park car park and are described below.
(Note: words underlined are links to pages)
Club Road Ride suitable for beginners 20 to 30 miles at 12-14 mph and taking in a cafe stop as per the cafe rota. This is the best ride to join if you are new to road cycling or making a return after a long lay-off.
Sunday morning (find out more about the ride on our Strava Club page and use the join button to confirm your attendance)
Club intermediate / advanced training ride. 15-17mph and 50 to 60 miles. This is a training ride for those members who are time trialling or taking part in audax, sportive or triathlon events. Numbers on the day will dictate how many groups go out.
Here are our favourite cafe stops
The rides are published on the club's Strava Club page.
Saturday morning social rides - both road and off road trail rides
There are rides for on-road and off-road groups, meeting at 9:45am (to leave at 10:00am) at the main car park in Horton Country Park in Horton Lane (near to the Old Moat Garden Centre). The rides are to a café and usually return to Epsom between 1pm and 2pm. The pace is conversational and is not a training ride, although sometimes members go off after the café stop and do their own thing - and anyone wanting a training ride can do a longer and faster ride to the cafe. Each week we ride to different cafe's according to our cafe rota.
Off-road trail rides
Saturday 10am off-road trail rides
Suitable for beginners or experienced riders (20-25 miles) and taking in a cafe stop as per the cafe rota. We normally meet at Horton Country Park car park in Epsom, but occasionally this varies, so contact Andy Pearce to confirm you would like to join the ride and the email list for ride updates.
For those who are happily retired, work-shy or with time on their hands, subject to the weather we meet at one of two or three locations for a 20-25 mile off road trail ride. Contact Jake Dodd to confirm you would like to join the ride and the email list for ride updates.
These rides generally take place in the warmer months and as weather allows in the rest of the year. Starts vary in Epsom, Ewell and Banstead and we finish at a pub for beers and a bite to eat. Contact Andy Pearce to confirm that they would like to join the ride and to get on the email list for ride updates.
