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.

Craven Arms the lumpy way...

By Kay Radford 

We have been extraordinarily lucky with all the club rides since October in that the weather has been really good. Today was no exception - slightly overcast to begin but quickly clearing and becoming bright (but cold). Lets hope this luck continues.

Also another good turn out with 11 cyclists meeting at The Market Street Cafe in Craven Arms for an excellent lunch. As usual on the Wednesday rides, small groups made their own way there by various routes. John, Huw and Paul having come the long route via Ludlow and most others coming on variations of route 44. 

As route 44 goes past my gate in Churchstoke I followed it all the way to Craven Arms, meeting Angela in Bishop's Castle en route. This route goes up every hill between the two places and often very steeply. I was definitely in need of refreshment and rest when I arrived in Craven Arms.

A group of 8 returned together via Broome, Aston on Clun, Beambridge, Kempton and Lydbury North - much easier!

Six in Clunbury, with one (Paul) behind the camera and another astray!
