Despite being quite close to London, Surrey is great for cycling. Perhaps the best area is ours (West Surrey) where there are challenging hills, vast tracts of common land and more trees than any other county in England. That's not to say we can't offer flatter rides as well - try the Downs Link from Guildford heading south all the way to the coast. There are canal towpaths to ride along, and a whole infrastructure of sign posted routes - the Surrey Cycleway, with free maps available.
Our members have a wealth of knowledge about the best roads (and tracks) to ride so you can guarantee a great ride if you come out with us.
About our group
Most of our members live in or around the towns of Guildford, Woking, Godalming, Farnham, Haslemere, Camberley and Frimley and most of our rides start from pre-arranged locations within this area. We offer mainly on-road rides at a range of speeds and over a range of distances.
Our organised rides mostly take the form of day or half day rides, usually on a Sunday or a Wednesday, starting between 9am and 10am. We meet at a variety of locations in our area and take advantage of quiet lanes wherever possible. We stop for coffee mid-morning and then for lunch, often at a pleasant country pub. Alternatively, those who prefer to bring their own food are welcome to do so. In the afternoon we usually stop at a café or garden centre for tea and cakes.
Whatever your ability, if you're in our area then you would be most welcome to join one of our rides, even if you're not a member (although you'll be encouraged to join if you decide you like the rides we organise). here is no charge for joining one of our rides.
