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.

Stiperstones

By Paul Rogers

Our final Wednesday meet of 2017 took 8 of us to the Stiperstones Inn, arriving from various directions within the space of a few minutes. John, Huw and I took a 34 mile route, storming down the B road from Chirbury towards Shrewsbury, only to find when we turned South that perhaps our new found form was something to do with the wind direction! The music selection in the bar was Christmas based, as to be expected, although perhaps from one of those CDs that would have been better left at the bottom of the pile. Much humming and even the occasional break out into full song did occur, so it was perhaps fortunate that we had the bar mostly to ourselves!

Writing this a week later, it is difficult to comprehend what has been and gone, with 10" of snow at the weekend and BC in a virtual lock down. Christmas dinner ride to the Inn on the Green next Sunday (17th), followed by our regular Winter Solstice visit to the top of Bury Ditches to hopefully see the sunrise (21st).
