We have our established Club Runs, all meet at SSC at 9.30am. The A group is a non-stop brisk ride for experienced riders getting in some quality base training miles; the B group is a more social and steady ride that explores the lanes and countryside of Worcestershire and neighbouring counties, with an obligatory café stop around mid way, distance typically around 50mls; the C group (Easyriders) is a gentle introductory ride over a couple of hours, ideal for newcomers and the less fit. Members aged from mid teens to late 60’s frequent the Wyre Forest club runs and of course, in the B and C groups no-one is left behind. While there are usually club members who are at SSC for the club run on a Sunday, the active club discussion forum is a great place to see who is out.
There are also ‘A group training rides’ that leave from the ‘Southern Division’ area around Pershore and East Worcester. These are put on the forum, under ‘Training Rides – Sunday Mornings – Southern Division’
From April to August we put on an evening Club time trial, currently using a mix of 4 different courses. Riders start at 1 minute intervals and are timed over the course, typically 10 miles to 14 miles, riding at their own pace. Members share marshalling duties during the year at these events and first man off is always at 7.00pm. This time trial series makes an annual club championship with trophies and prizes awarded at the end of the season for a variety of categories.

Youth & Junior coaching. Many younger riders both members and non members, attend these extremely popular, well established Go Ride sessions which are run on part of the new circuit by our qualified coaches between 7.00 and 8.00 during the summer months.
The club has training rides with a mix of ‘on the circuit’ or ‘on the road’ sessions during the winter period. There are also training rides that leave from the ‘Southern Division’ area around Pershore and East Worcester.
With all of the club rides it is a good idea to post on the forum or the club facebook page that you are planning to be out, as sometimes the weather, other events etc. may affect who is there.
If you are planning to be out, let everyone know through the forum or facebook page and it will encourage more people to join the club runs.
