The important thing with the following rides is that all abilities are looked after. Nobody is left behind and there is advice and support if you need it.
During BST, when the car park is open at the Humber Bridge we run a starter ride at 6pm of approx. 25 miles. This ride is designed to be adaptable for the people present and includes an optional hill.
On a Thursday evening, all year round we run a social ride from the Fair Maid at 6pm, which is usually about 30 miles.
Our weekend club runs alternate between Saturdays and Sundays meeting at 9:00am from one of three starting points:
- The Fair Maid, Cottingham.
- The Humber Bridge Car Park, next to the Visitor Centre
During Autumn, Spring and Summer we try to run with two groups.
Both groups leave at 9am with the stronger group either leaving slightly earlier or riding a longer/more hilly distance.
The GPS routes for cycle computers are available from the Garmin website via the events page on our Facebook page .
The groups formed depend on the numbers but over winter it is often not possible to have both groups but we do try to accommodate all abilities.
In late Spring and through the Summer we also ride Tuesday evenings meeting outside (what used to be) The Purple Cow at 6:15pm. This ride is generally quick(ish).
These Tuesday night rides can be full on with even the fittest of us out of breath from the exertion, if you’re new to cycling Tuesday nights may not be the best starting option.
Please see the club run calendar page and Facebook Events page for details.
If you are thinking of joining us on a club run then we ask you complete the emergency contact form.
Cycle helmets must be worn on all CRC club runs.
Please ensure that your bike is fully road worthy and properly maintained for all club runs.
We also ask that you carry a spare tube or puncture repair kit and know how to use it should an incident occur.
