Summer Social Shop Rides - Pedal Progression
 

Summer Social Shop Rides

The Summer Social Shop Rides are exactly as they sound. A relaxed ride around Bristol’s awesome local trails with plenty of chat, plenty of riding and plenty of smiles. These rides will take place on the first Thursday of each month at 6pm between April and the end of September. There is no cost to come along. Expect to ride between 1.5 and 3 hours.

The route will vary on the day depending on who turns up and trail conditions. It will likely cover, blue, red and similar level natural trails possibly with the occasional more difficult trail. There will always be alternative and or walking routes suggested for those who don’t feel up to riding some of the sections.

Bike hire on our quality Marin Bobcat Trail 5’s will be available. You will need to call the store in advance to reserve a bike.

Please note: Over 18’s only. We take no responsibility for riders joining us on these rides. All riders choose to ride at their own risk.┬áRiders should wear a helmet and any protection they like to wear. You should be self sufficient in terms of water, food, tools, first aid equipment and spares and have considered how you might get home should your bike break. Please check our Facebook page on the day of the ride. We plan to go ahead in most conditions but if it is looking bad we may cancel because often people don’t show when it’s wet!

Let us know you’re planning to come by signing up on the British Cycling Let’s Ride page – click the links below. This will also help us to notify you if for some reason the ride is cancelled.
