Club Rides - Sunday Morning

Sunday morning rides almost always depart from the corner of Turner Lane and High Street, Whiston at 9.00am prompt unless we're doing something a bit special. Check the upcoming events below for the meet time.

If you come along on a Sunday club ride, we will be on the road, riding for about 4 hours covering around 50 miles at about 13-14mph with a café stop.

Including the café stop we're usually back in the village for around 1pm.

We always have a planned route for a Sunday ride and they can be found below.
