This group is the focal place for cycling in GOC. Both to promote cycling trips and to advertise activities involving cycling from events arranged by the other groups within GOC. There are day rides organised locally, and longer trips organised nationally.
Cycling covers a very wide range of activities from road cycling to mountain biking, from easy rides to challenging routes or sporty fast. Whatever the level or type of cycling, the aim of our rides is that everyone should feel they are part of a group. We ride for enjoyment, so there will be re-grouping stops at the tops of the big hills and at turning points, and of course there will be cafe stops. Some members have e-bikes.
The listing of the ride or event will include a description of the length, the hill climbs, the terrain, and the general speed, which should help you select an appropriate ride.
