Join our free cycling training program designed for absolute beginners (Zero miles).
Aimed at preparing you to take part in our 30 mile Invitation Ride in May (Hero miles) and to generally introduce you to cycling and the club in general. We currently have “Short Social” rides every Sunday around 30 miles that would lead on from z to h perfectly.
Starting with 10miles and gradually increasing each week, on local, quiet roads.
Everyone welcome on any road worthy bike and a cycling helmet must be worn.
Paced to accommodate all riders, nobody left behind.
(see picture from a week 1 Strava screen shot 9.8 mph average, ignore the distance as it includes getting to and from the starting point 🙂 )
Led by a fully qualified coach.

Have a look at the”what to bring” and “getting started” tabs here https://www.seacroftwheelers.co.uk/rides/ for some helpful tips and advice. The “ride smart” videos are also worth a watch on the same page.
You don’t need to bring everything on that list to these training rides, bike helmet and water bottle and an inner tube will suffice. We can assist with any mechanicals/tool requirements.
Please note on all Seacroft Wheelers rides (in line with British Cycling guidelines) all under 16’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult and under 18’s must supply a signed ParentalConsent form.
