We like riding bikes!

We are a diverse group of people living in the Bishops Castle area with one thing in common - we like riding bikes! We organise rides for riders of all abilities, and we are affiliated to Cycling UK for the protection of all.

Rides are on the first Wednesday of the month. Rides are normally "meet at destination" rides, enabling riders of all abilities to meet at a place and time to socialise together.

In addition, an informal "further, faster" group meets each Wednesday at the Six Bells Pub. You should use the link below to contact us if you think you might want to join this ride for the first time, so that we can let you know if it's going to be right for you.

Castle Kitchen in February

by Kay Radford

A rare warm and sunny day between wild and wet frontal weather encouraged 10 of us out on our bicycles. Small groups and individuals made their way to Montgomery over the hills and far away. Rose probably rode the furthest, covering 40 miles on the way. Others made their way via the Anchor and Abermule, Bishop's Moat and Cefn Coed, or a more direct route.  

I made my way up towards Corndon then down to Marton, Caerhowel, Abermule and Llandyssil. The birds were singing and the woods were scattered with snowdrops. Red kites wheeled over the Camlad valley and a murmuration of starlings swept the skies near Llandyssil. A perfect early spring morning.

We all met at the welcoming Castle Kitchen and indulged in their usual excellent lunches amidst general bonhommie.  

Who could not be feeling good on such a wonderful day?
