Club members meet by the bus stop outside Corbetts Tey cemetery (RM14 2UY) each Sunday morning for a gentle social ride.
All members are welcome to participate but they leave at 9:00 am sharp so don't be late. The length of the ride and the route are generally agreed at the time.
The off road section of the club goes out twice a week.
Meet at Hacton Lane playground car park at 9am on Saturday mornings and at 9.30 am on Wednesday mornings.
You will need an off road machine as most of the riding is on trails.
