This page gives information about cycle rides run by other organisations. Our rides are aimed at those cyclists that have little experience or are just looking for an easy sociable cycle ride on a Sunday afternoon. These rides are listed on the Our Rides page. For those looking for something altogether faster and further then we have listed below some organisations that run such rides. In each case, see the appropriate website for more information.
Skyride in Woking
Sky Ride Local rides are free community bike rides. British Cycling trained ride leaders – friendly local volunteers who love bike riding and want to share that enthusiasm – guide groups of around 16-24 people along a variety of rural and urban routes. They’re on hand to provide friendly encouragement and guidance, whatever your age or ability.
Something for the ladies.There is a sub group of the above which has started here in Woking. The leaders have been trained by British Cycling to encourage more Women to cycle in a fun and social group. Currently there is a Breeze ride every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month that starts from beside the Bridge Barn in Woking at 9.30 am and are steady paced rides of about 15 miles into the surrounding areas. They also do other rides as and when and all the rides are posted on the Breeze Network (part of goskyride) but specifically for women. They go at the pace of the slowest so that no one gets left behind.
Elmbridge Cycle Group
They go on regular Sunday rides that are generally a little longer than ours, so good for people who want a step up from “novice”. They start at the Hand and Spear pub in Weybridge (next to the station). Their rides are year round and usually on the second Sunday of the month starting at 10am but best to check their website for details.
Cycling UK West Surrey
The West Surrey member group of Cycling UK runs rides regularly on Sunday mornings and all day on Wednesdays. On Sundays, Easy and Intermediate riders meet outside Barclays Bank in Woking Town Square at 9.15 am. The meeting point for all day rides for Easy and Intermediate riders on Wednesdays varies.
Woking Cycle Club
Fast growing Club in town. Their weekly Sunday rides started out for those who like to go fast but not too fast-average speed 16 mph. Now they have included slower rides. They leave at 8am from Leisure centre and the usual ride is about 30 miles. They also run a Saturday Social ride. These rides leave on Saturday mornings from outside the Cricketers pub on Horsell Birch at 9:30 for a 15 mile ride. They usually have two groups so slower riders can be accommodated. You can just show up or find out their plans for the week by asking to join them on Facebook under ‘Woking CC Saturday Social’.
Charlotteville Cycle Club (based in Guildford)
Arrange club runs on a Sunday morning. As to the speed of such runs they say “Generally the pace will be about 19mph on the road, with an overall average lower than that, as we stop to regroup at appropriate intervals.” If you are interested, then more information can be found on the website.
