Bleasby Bikers

Your local cycling club, with over sixty members from Bleasby and surrounding villages.

We are a friendly road cycling club, enjoying weekly rides, Sportives around the UK, and annual events.

Membership is open to all men and women over the age of 18, and costs just £10 per year.

We are affiliated to British Cycling.

There are three levels of participation to choose from:

  • The Easy Riders – out most Sunday mornings to ride 25 - 30 miles at a social pace. Rides are relatively flat, and there’s always a coffee stop!
  • The Roleurs – out most Sunday mornings, and will ride 40 – 50 miles. Suitable for more experienced riders, capable of enjoying more hilly routes. Members usually insist on a coffee stop too!
  • There’s also a small group of fast, competent riders who will typically cycle in excess of 50 miles (with as many hills as they can find) at a strong pace.

Weekly rides are usually organised via WhatsApp, and routes are typically decided informally on the day based on weather conditions and how much time people have available. 

Most rides start from the Waggon & Horses, Bleasby.

If you’re interested, then please email Colin at bleasbybikers@btinternet.com
