Sunday Club Rides

On Sundays, we usually have three groups catering for differing levels of fitness with mileages ranging from 50 to 80 miles with a cafe stop along the way to refuel and rest before heading back.

The routes are planned in advance and the route file and risk assessment are available via the club Routes page to enable you to preview and download them.

You must not turn up for a ride if you have any symptoms of illness or feel unwell

Group Size

The club will limit the group size to a maximum of 12. At the ride leaders, discretion the group size can be a lower number, or the group can be split depending on the experience and capability of the riders. If demand is high additional groups will need to be arranged and we will need more people to volunteer to lead these groups. You don’t need to have formal training to lead a club ride but you do need to be experienced in group riding.


Meeting Point

Please note the meeting point has changed, it is now Sherborne St John village hall car park.


If you are bringing a car please park at the back of the village hall. Do not park in the Swan care park, as your car may be towed away!
