Sunday Cyclists

CycleBOP_LOGOCycling for fun, fitness and friendship
Sunday morning rides in rural low traffic areas to suit cyclists of all abilities – beginners to experienced. We believe in looking out for each other. You won’t be left behind to find your own way home.

We ride rain or shine!
Most weeks there is a choice of three ride distances – 20, 40 or 60 km. Within each distance group there are also pace groups. You fit in where you feel comfortable, depending on your fitness level and goals.
The ride courses vary from week to week and generally are along cyclist friendly routes that avoid main roads.  Suitable for ALL types of bicycles. Visitors very welcome.

Rides start from various locations, so if you are not on our email list please phone, Jenny 07 578 8937 or John 07 533 1262.
